I just got a new WIndows 7 PC and love it.  I have a very old PC game called "Grand Prix 4" by Microporse that I love but am having trouble getting it to run.  It installes fine, but when I go to run it, an error pops up that says "DirectX 8.1 must be installed".  I have a new GT9800 video cars, which I believe uses DirectX 10.  The game runs in a DOS shell.  I have tried running it in all the different compatibility modes, and my PC will not run XP mode in Windows 7.

Does anyone have any experince with tis particualr game and Windows 7?
