    Has anyone tried running UT2004 under one of the betas of Windows 7? I'm thinking of changing over to 7 when it's released, but won't do so unless it can run 2004. Thanks.

    Haven't had any trouble here on Build 7000 (the public one) in 64-bit mode.

    It runs perfectly, yes. However, the editor will not. I'm not sure, but you might just need to install DirectX 9 to make it run correctly, though.

    I thought UT2004 installed DirectX when it's installed. Will DirectX 9c (the last version of 9 released) run under Win 7?

    AFIK Whenever a newer version of DirectX setup runs it just goes through the motions and does not replace any newer files. It's not like .NET where you can have all 3 versions running on one machine. 10 supersedes them all.

    I am running Windows 7 32 bit and UT2004 installs and runs great.

    GreatEmerald, DX9 contains all implementations of DX prior to it. He won't need to get DX7 or DX8 if he downloads DX9.

    Yes, but the way your post sounded, it sounded like he'd need to get 7, 8, and 9 in that order. :p
