I know that the Hitman series has Windows 7 issues, especially under the 64-bit version.

You have two choices:

  • Dual boot Win7 and XP. This is probably your BEST option.
  • Install XP into a virtual machine using either VMWare Player or Virtual Box. However, performance may suffer even if your CPU can do hardware virtualization even though both of these VM engines can do 3D acceleration.

    That's about your only recourse.
