Yeah, I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I can't RT3 to install the "Tages" drivers. Install completes but the program nwon't run once it is installed. Here are the two errors I get when I click on the game desktop icon or trying it straight from the original game exe. Mind you this was run as Administrator.
