Most common problems
- Windows 7 is not supported in the original version. However some download versions (notably the one available at GOG) are patched to work properly in Windows 7 (both 32 and 64 bits).
- On Windows Vista 32 bits, the game can exhaust the virtual address space. The issue is fixed in Vista SP1 or in this hotfix.
