    TR Anniversary on Windows 7 -install problem

    I cannot install TR Anniversary, I have Windows 7 64-bit. The computer reads the disc but when I press "install" once I have launched the TRA.exe the installation window just closes and nothing happens. Does anyone know how to install the game on 64-bit Windows 7?

    Arrow Try to run setup.exe as Administrator explicitly and disbale DEP for the game

    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:

    1. open the system control panel
      Start Menu > Control Panel > System
    2. Click on “Advanced system setting” under Tasks (right column)
    3. Click on the “Settings” button in the “Performance” section
    4. Open the “Data Execuion Prevention” tab
    5. Click on the “Add...” button.
    6. 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

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

    Start Tomb Raider Anniversary (TRA) and enjoy!
