Default Re: Gaming and Win 7 question

64 Bit Tip:

You know that "Program Files (x86)" folder that it puts all your 32 bit stuff in? Some old games may install there (or may not), but the patches for them will refuse with "invalid characters in path" errors. Duh Microsoft....Friggin(@x86) DUH!

I'd make a new folder right on C:\ for old stuff and install anything made over a year ago to it, just in case. C:\Games or C:\Old Apps or C:\DOS Crap....whatever.
