how to get rome total war to work on windows 7 64bit
hi all not sure if anyone has already mentioned this but i was having trouble installing rome on windows 7 64bit. I found out that when you get asked where you would like to install rome (C:/Program files/Activision/rome-total war) if you just add (x86) after C:/Program files so should look like this C:/Program Files (x86)/Activision/Rome-Total War
hope this works for other people who had trouble getting RTW to work on windows 7 64bit
I also went in and set the system to run the exe as Windows XP when I play it. And, also set to run as Administrator.

I have just discovered recently that if you right click your game icon and open the properties, you can set your settings on this particular game to run as Win XP3 compatible. I was not aware until I was goofin' around looking at the properties I don't remember why. But I seen the tab that shows compatibility and a bow to run the program as which ever Windows needed along with granting the game to run as admin. all the time. I am wtill learing how to play with Win7 so I hope everyone the best on their adventures also.
ive been trying to install the original file of rtw from disk to my new laptop pc running windows 7.
unfortunatly when i try to install it, it gets stuck at c\..\data\sounds\voice2.dat
ive tried doing that (x86) de4ny mentioned, but it hasnt worked.
any help would be appreciated
I have the exact same problem as Lightways above, which is why i came here looking for help. Looking to go back and play this on my new PC, been a few years since I have...
thanks for the help
It works fine on my Win 7 64-bit laptop. But I notice Win 7 likes to store save files in a weird location:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\saves
It did that for a while on my Win 7 32-bit desktop, but later returned to storing them in the "saves" folder in the RTW installation folder.
hey guys . you must need instal patch 1.5
