Several years ago I purchased "Myst V End of Ages" and installed it on my PC which at that time was running Windows XP. After I installed it it would not run so I went to the support site on the internet and found a patch. I installed the patch and it worked fine. I got about half way through the Myst V adventure when my PC died. I built a new PC and installed Windows 7. I never installed the Myst V and forgot about it. I just tried to install it on my Windows 7 PC but I could not find the patch I had downloaded. Myst V installed but when I try to run it I get an error and it will not start. I am unable to find that patch on UBISOFT web site. Has anyone on used Myst V on there Windows 7 computers and if so can you lead me to the patch I seem to need.

GuiltySpark; that is the web site were I was searching for the patch and I could not find any for Myst V running on a PC. I did find one for MAC but that is no help to me as I only run PC's. Since I posted here I registered with UBISOFT and posted my problem to there tech support but that could take a long while before I hear from them if at all. I was hoping that someone on here might have run Myst V and have the patch.
I managed to get Myst V End of Ages running under Window 7. Here is how I did it.
How to make Myst V run under Windows 7
1. First install Myst V on your Windows 7 computer.
2. Go toxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.zip and download the zip file.
3. Unzip the files.
4. Copy the folder INIT that was unzipped under the directory Myst5Initfile\Myst V End of Ages to C:\users\<your windows name>\AppData\Local\Myst V End Of Ages
That should make Myst V work for you running under Windows 7. It worked for me.
