    Sid Meiers Pirates


    There are games that will not lie down and die, the remake of the 1987 classic Pirates, to my mind, is one of them. I have it working perfectly on Win 8, but it reports that dll - msvcp71.dll - is missing on my Win 7 x 64 laptop. Why? I found and installed the dll into win 7 but still no joy. I even tried the cmd command regsvr32 (dll name) with no joy.

    So why Win 8 and not Win 7???
