I hate posting two threads in one day, but this is important!!! I just read the technical requirements morrowind needs to run on and it says
Quote:
Morrowind will run on Windows 98 or later, including Windows Vista and Windows 7.
So yes it will work, but is installing it any different? And if it is, do i need to run compatability mode?

When I installed it I just.. installed it. Nothing special was needed at all. My experience is the same as Spiney's, except I have Vista 64-bit instead.

what about my monitor though?
Quote:
Morrowind's maximum natively-supported resolution is 1600 × 1200, and does not support any aspect ratios other than 4:3.
and my aspect ratio 16:9 and i can't change it.

Your options would be:

1. Run Morrowind in full screen and deal with the stretched screen,

2. Run Morrowind in windowed mode which preserves the 4:3 aspect ratio (although in my experience you will want the Nighteye effect because the "gamma correction" has no effect in windowed mode), or

3. Install a mod that offers custom rez (like MGE)

Is your version patched fully. That is all I can think of.
