Same issue here, Windows 7 64bit new machine. I feel your pain. Been trying to install since last night and have been searching the internet for solutions.

I anxiously await replies

Load disk into drive, go to start menu>computer>right click on Auto Play>click Open folder to view files>organize>properties>compatibility>check compatibility mode - I chose Windows XP>click OK. Back to view files>click Auto Run>install

I've been searching for days....Please try and see if that helps you install

I'm also unable to install Anniversary on W7 64-bit. Where do I find this "compatibility" tab? When I go into that tab you mention (properties), I cannot find anything that prompts me to choose/ select how to run it or its compatibility.

umm. when you put the disc in the drive, go to my computer, click on the drive you inserted disc in with right click. click explore and in there find setup. click it.

I had no problems installing the game, but I almost automagicaly install all software explicitly as administrator.

So try to run setup.exe (on the disc) as administrator. (Right click on setup.exe and choose Run as Administrator).

Hope this helps

I did experience problems running the game in Windows 7 64bit .

To get Tomb Raider Anniversary working in Windows 7 x64, i had to disable DEP (Data Execution Prevention) for the game's executable: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tomb Raider – Anniversary\tra.exe".

Steps to disable DEP for tra.exe:

open the system control panel
Start Menu > Control Panel > System
Click on “Advanced system setting” under Tasks (right column)
Click on the “Settings” button in the “Performance” section
Open the “Data Execuion Prevention” tab
Click on the “Add...” button.
Browse to the tra.exe executable, the default location is
“%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Tomb Raider – Anniversary\tra.exe”
(and click on “Open”)

Note: the list will now include: Tomb Raider: Anniversary

Click on “Apply” and “OK” button in the “Performance Options” window.
Click on “OK” button in the “System Properties” window.
Close the “System” control panel

Start Tomb Raider Anniversary (TRA) and enjoy! :gamer:
