      1. Hi. Not sure what the issue could be. Ensure the fix is installed in the right directory "..\Hard West\64\ ".
        Also, for Windows 7 & 8: In the NVIDIA Control Panel, where it says "Select when the display is in 3D mode", ensure that "Only when full-screen 3D programs run" is NOT selected.

        I tested this fix on Windows 7 x64, Geforce drivers 364.51.
