After ranting three times to check the compatibility site, I neglected to mention the fact that it's very 'beta'. I don't think MS care terribly much about it. How much effort would it take to ask at least the major pubs to send a compatibility report on all their games? As it is, you mostly get a '?'
That's nice that you're still talking about the Microsoft Campatability website again, and that you personally like one NFS game over another, as you stated in a previous post, however, that is still no solution to get NFS:U2 actually working on Windows 7, which is the majority of the reason people are even reading this thread. I am almost sure they could care less about how Microsoft Compatability website is still in beta, or for that matter, what games you personally like that you think are better than THIS game, and which graphic cards you're not going to buy, et al. Just sayin.
For those wanting a possible solution, I suggest (again) to uninstall all remnants of the game, then try downloading the game demo first. Play the demo to make sure it runs. If it does, like it has on my Windows 7 64-bit machine, then install the game as normal, with no compatability setting used. The game should run flawlessly after that. You can always erase the demo at any time afterward without any problems. This is how I got the game to finally run, so hope this helps!
