    I bought Civ4 from Direct2Drive with its two expansion packs and Colonization. I already owned Civ4 on disk, but no expansions. After downloading them, I tried to install, but it said that it was incompatible with the version I had. Ok, no problem. I uninstalled my copy of Civ4 and installed the downloaded one. When trying to play it, it read that I was missing MSVCR71.dll. I have downloaded it from several diffrent places and tried to register it with the run and command prompt, but it read that the bianary path didn't work or something. I have been to tons of threads about this, but none seemed to help. I have windows 7 64 bit and direct X.

    Please help!

    No... I found out that THAT version of Civ4 dosen't work with 7... The downloaded one. The disks work fine. I got it to work on my laptop with vista fine, but if anyone else has this problem, I doubt anything will work.
