First, for anyone to help you we need to know a few facts.

1. Which version of Prophecy are you trying to install? Retail CD or GOG?

2. Are you using any of the fan-mods? (OpenGL patch, custom high-resolution, etc.)

3. Where are you installing the game too?

4. What error prompts are you receiving?

Prophecy works on everything from 95 to 10 so I'm sure we can figure this out. If not I, there are a plethora of stronger minds towards the game here.

Hello. I was able to install and run WC Prophecy on my Win7-64 bit machine by setting the compatibility mode to Win 98 for all executable files, including the launcher and setup executable files. I hope this helps. My Prophecy version is the retail CD, not GOG.
