Halo 2 PC on Windows 7.

Hey guys. This is my first or second post I think so I'm sort of new to the forums. Anyways, me and my friend wanted to get Halo 2 for the PC so that we can play it after we hit the credit limit on Reach. I read that to play Halo 2, you need Vista. Because Windows 7 came out after Vista (I think?) will Halo 2 be able to work on Windows 7? Thanks.

  • I see the date on the post is last june 2011 so its possable the issue of running Halo2 on win7 may have been resolved by now. anyway in case there are any people that haven't court up whith how to fix this little sucker i do have a solution. 1- install halo 2 using the "custom install" option first. do not try to run the game yet!!!! other wise it wont work no matter you do! - next 2 - find the halo 2.exe and set the the compatablity to Vista - not vista 1 or 2. don't run the game yet!! 3 - you need to download the "games for windows client" found on the xbox.com page relating to PC games, save it then run it. http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/PC?xr=shellnav you need an xbox account and Tag to play online microsoft games. you need to have the games for windows client runnig for the whole thing to work. once the you have a conection with you xbox account you can now play it. enjoy!!!!!!!!! please forgive me if I have put this little note in the wrong place or if this thing has already been done and dusted. I mean no disrespect to anyone. keith

Backup before you do so. :)[/quote] Ahahahahahaaaah!!! That was hilarious! [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Zetren Ah you see, I was joking there. Come on man, it ain't that hard.[/quote] Honestly, Zetren I'm not trying to offend you because in fact I respect you but I don't really see what was so funny about that. However I did notice that you were being sarcastic:)

But as said, it appears to work for some and not for others, just make sure your specs are okay and hopefully the rest will just work as intended.

  • Check the return policy before you buy it. The game has been reduced because it doesn't sell well and you may not be able to return it.

  • Oh alright. I could just buy the game and check if it works. If not, I could always try to return it.

  • Maybe or maybe not. There seems to be varying success when it comes being able to successfully install and play H2V. So basically it may work or it may not.
