I was considering buying Mirror's Edge from Direct2Drive when it was on sale, but then noticed this at the bottom of the page:

Known Issues Windows 7 is not supported

Has anyone had any trouble running Mirror's Edge on Windows 7 Home Professional 64-bit? If so, what steps did you take to resolve the issue? I don't want to buy the game if it won't run on my machine.

Bear in mind that not supported is more of a CYA thing, and does not necessarily mean won't run. – Nick T Dec 20 '11 at 23:21

As i remember i played it on Windows 7 64 bits without any problem. Strange notice. However google and some boards are saying it's physX related and ATI for the ones having issues running it.

Likewise, though my copy came from Steam (no idea why there would be a difference). I do have an Nvidia card, FWIW. – Nick T Dec 20 '11 at 23:16
My situation is the same as Nick T, and it runs perfectly for me. Fun game. – SaintWacko Dec 20 '11 at 23:23
I've ran it on windows 7 and I have an ATI card with no problems. I did remember that I had to do something with physx though, but its been a while and I forgot what. Google should solve that for you. – l I Dec 21 '11 at 0:48
I was having an immediate crash without logo on Windows 8.1 with a 2013 NVidia card. Fixed by copying "Mirror's Edge\Binaries\PhysXLocal\PhysXLoader.dll" to "Mirror's Edge\Binaries\PhysXLoader.dll" per this thread ( – Tyler Szabo Jul 2 '14 at 8:47
