Every time I try I get an error message saying the game stopped working. But my laptop meets all the system requirements and then some. The only reason I can think of is because it's a DirectX 7 game and my graphics card has DirectX 11.

The game requirements are:

OS:Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
Processor:1.8 GHz Processor
Memory:512 MB RAM
Graphics:3D graphics card compatible with DirectX 7
DirectX®:7.0
Hard Drive:2 GB HD space

My computer has:

OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)
Processor: Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00 GHz
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M
DirectX 11
Hard Drive space: 1188 GB remaining. (1 1/4 TB total)

Have you tried running the game in compatibility mode?

Right click the .exe and troubleshoot compatibility. One of the options will be to run the game in XP mode.

That didn't work either. But the requirements already say it should work on Windows 7.

Are you playing the game on Steam? Make sure to run both steam and the .exe as administrator as well.

If you bought the game on steam then you can try the fix in this thread http://steamcommunity.com/app/224920/discussions/0/846944689653666452/
if its not a steam title if found this site with some patches that you might try
http://www.thelostworlds.net/HowTo/Running_Soul_Reaver_on_Windows_XP_and_Vista.html
I also saw a few forum post that said something about audio settings making the game crash.
Hopefully one of these fixes your issue!

exactly like it says:

First Run the two patches from here in the steam apps Soul Reaver Folder:

http://www.thelostworlds.net/Software/Soul_Reaver_PC_Patch_for_XP_and_Vista.html

Then unzip this into the Steam App Soul Reaver folder and run:

I tried installing the patches. It still doesn't work. Also all that was in the XP/Vista patch was the .exe file for the game and a readme file.
