I'm thinking about going to Windows 7 from XP. Has anyone run any of the MechWarrior titles on 7?

ALL! LoL. Back to Cresent Hawk if someone knows. –  Präriewolf Jul 21 '10 at 13:57
    
I run Crescent Hawk's Inception/Revenge every now and then, using DOSBox... –  Mauricio Scheffer May 1 '13 at 23:12
    
And of course, there's Mechwarrior online now... mwomercs.com –  Mauricio Scheffer May 1 '13 at 23:13

Any idea on MW3? –  Präriewolf Jul 21 '10 at 12:37
    
I can't verify this myself, but I have heard of MW3 running on windows 7 as long as the compatibility mode is set to win 98/ME. –  en1gmatic325 Jul 22 '10 at 21:47

Yes, both MW4 and MW3 and their expansions will run on Win7. Just make sure your comp modes are set correctly.

What compatibility modes did you have success with? –  agent86 Jan 29 '12 at 17:04
