You can set W7 up near identical to Classic XP.
If GPL didn't run well in W7 I would still have XP images to restore in a few minutes.........bugger dual boot, too messy.
So I finally decided to toss XP along with Nascar2003 and F1-2002/F1C ( massive folders ) and anything else did not run 100% in W7 last year.
I have original GTL DVD + 2008 "fix" :p ... works as good as the rest in W7 if you install it on a drive, keep the backup then wipe the OS if you paranoid too. lol
I been using the one folder archive for 4 years , before that I ran GTR and GTL starforce both online and never had a issue.
I still use the same archive, just keep adding to it and back it up now and then.
I understand Steam users
but no way I would ever put steam on my PC for just GTL.
I have 6 sims incl pCARS and rF2 why would I ever need steam .......
Any developer decides just Steam is good enough, be forewarned, you will never ever get my money...........their loss.
SimBin lost me after Evo, I glad anyways I never liked Race for having the SLOWEST transfer rate ever.
Try a 40GB folder SSD to SSD go on I dare you you.
A defragmentation gets to a Race folder it has a stress attack. hehehe
