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 (forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2127437) – Tyler Szabo Jul 2 '14 at 8:47
