32-bit version of Windows 7:

When a ‘clean’ install is done of any Adventure Workshop disc, exactly as described in this FAQ

'Clean' Install on Win98/Me/XP/2000/Vista/Win7

that Adventure Workshop disc should install on any 32-bit version of Windows 7 without incident.

64-bit version of Windows 7:

When a ‘clean’ install is done of any Adventure Workshop disc, exactly as described in this FAQ

'Clean' Install on Win98/Me/XP/2000/Vista/Win7

many Adventure Workshop discs can be installed on any 64-bit version of Windows 7 without incident.

However, not all Adventure Workshop discs can be installed on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. That is because the setup.exe file for some Adventure Workshop discs is not compatible with any 64-bit Operating System - because those setup.exe files contain the old 16-bit programming code which was commonly used for programs which were designed before WinXP was released. 64-bit Operating Systems cannot handle 16-bit programming code. And, there is no way to work around that problem.

Posted below is a chart for the 9th Edition of Adventure Workshop, which indicates which of the disks can be installed on a 64-bit version of Windows 7.

Since the CD is required to be in the drive for some discs but not for all discs, and since not all discs are installed into the same default install folder, that chart also indicates 1) whether or not the CD is required to be in the drive when the game is played and 2) the default install folder for each disc.

Please do keep in mind that the information in the chart applies to only the 9th Edition of Adventure Workshop. I do not currently have access to any earlier versions of Adventure Workshop. But, hopefully, the information in that chart will provide useful information for some of the discs in the earlier versions of Adventure Workshop.

NOTE: If you don't know which version of Windows 7 you are using, go to Control Panel, select System, then look in the 'System type:' section for something which says either '32-bit Operating System' or '64-bit Operating System'.
