There was a post about this recently:
EF in Win7

Seems it should be possible, but you may have to manually install it.

I did get it to work with Win7, but I had trouble getting it to go at first. I think the problem was Norton antivirus, but I did several things at once so I'm not entirely sure.

Anyway, the game works fine on my computer now. No compatibility problems for me.

I have it running at home on a native Windows 7 environment.. specifically so I can test it and see what glitches or odd occurrences will happen.

Mostly, it's been smooth sailing, with one or two glitches:

I've had to modify the startup so that it ignores hwgamma, but then again, I had that for XP as well..

one glitch specific to Windows 7 on EF launch is an odd thing with Aero (taskbar area).. Aero will try to override and come back to the foreground.. when I click back on the EF main screen, it flickers for a second then goes back to having the windows Aero in the foreground.. one workaround I've found is "quadclicking" on the EF window and make it the main focus, then it's fine and I have no glitches.. but I've yet to find an official solution. BTW, it doesn't seem to matter if it's windowed or not.. I prefer to play windowed so that I can grab any missing PK3's if I run across a server that has a map I haven't got.

Hope it helps ya!

You have to launch EF in compatibility mode Windows XP, disabling DPI scaling and enhanced desktop. That will do.
