Default How to install Discworld Noir on Windows 7?

I'm trying to install Discworld Noir on Windows 7...this is whats happened....

I installed the game, attempted to play, and it says "TIN3_DXD.EXE has stopped working"

I attempted to run the game in all compatibility modes: windows 95, 98 and 2000/ME.

It still said that TIN3_DXD.EXE has stopped working.

So I changed in the registry to open windowed mode like it says to do in an older post on this forum where people are trying to install the game on Vista.

But it still doesn't work. I've also tried reinstalling, I've tried a no-cd game patch, but none of this works.

Could it be the wrong version of direct X? Do I need to install the game IN compatibility mode? Is there something wrong with my game? People seem to have made it work with Vista, I don't see why it doesn't work on Win7... anybody know?

Please help! Thanks

Some folks suggest setting screen resolution compatibility to 640x480. Don't know if this will affect Windows 7, though it apparently has helped under other Windows versions.

Have you tried the patch in this thread?

It worked miracles for me, still some crashes when entering some new areas and have to start a new game to load (crashes from menu) but those were really just small inconveniences.
