LEGO character games
 
Is LEGO Star Wars II The Original Triology, and LEGO Indiana Jones The Original Adventures compatible with the Windows 7 operating systems? It's been a really long time, and Microsoft still has not posted an answer on their compatibility website. It's disappointing because these games don't seem that old.

The LucasArts website contains no information on Windows 7 compatibility which is sad. :(

Even if it isn't compatible with Win7, you should be able to run it in WinXP compatibility mode (assuming you have something other than Win7 Home or Starter).

Never had a problem running games on Windows 7, even older games. You should be fine.

By Win7 Home, do you mean Home Premium?

By windows 7 he means - it doesn't matter because it won't make a difference.

No, I mean that if, by some chance, the game he has won't work on Windows 7, then he can still run it in XP mode as long as he doesn't have Windows 7 Starter or Windows 7 Home Premium. Those two editions do NOT provide the Windows XP compatibility mode and thus will NOT run older applications that won't run under Windows 7. AFAIK, most of the applications that won't run under Windows 7 are business apps, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are a few games that don't run as well.

In fact, a quick Google shows that there are indeed problems with running Lego Star Wars II on Windows 7. The information appears to be mixed, but it appears that you can run Star Wars II as Administrator ok (the problem appears to be with the stupid SecuROM DRM crap). There is also a patch available from the SecuROM people. Go to www.securom.com/support for more info.

Indiana Jones is supposed to be compatible out of the box.

I got brave and installed it on my computer with Win7 Home Prem 64bit. After installation I played the game and everything seemed okay. The only thing I noticed that I don't remember when playing this game in Win XP was some intermittent picture flickering. I know my graphics has the latest driver, so I'm not sure what is going on. Nevertheless it didn't interfere that much.
