I haven't been able to get the game running on my new computer.
Using Windows 7 Pro
AMD FX8350 4GHz 8Core AM3+
Radeon HD7870 2GB 16XCle 3.0 video card
256 GB OCZ Agility 4 SATA-III SSD
I tried downloading from the LOTRO site at 160Kbs (took 30 hours or so), but when it tried to install, there was an error that gave me the option to retry or abort. After retrying a number of times, I aborted.
I then installed the game disks from a friend who had the original game so that I could add updates to that, but when I tried the launcher after rebooting, I got messages of System Argument Exceptions.
I had also tried to copy the files from the directory of my older computer (which runs the game reliably if not without lag issues) into my new computer with hopes that I might be able to find an easier way to install the game with those files loaded. I saw some posts to that effect, but I was not successful in that approach either.
At least I can still play on my older computer. Any help would be appreciated.

I just wanted to post that I was successful in getting the game to work. After running the game disks, I transferred the ring icon to the desktop, clicked on it and the game opened properly. I had been trying to activate the game from the directory before when I got the error messages.
After about a 20-hour update process, I was able to enter the game without a hitch. The ultra graphics and non-lag were actually worth all the pain of installing the game.

What about windows 7 STARTER edition?
I'm running a version of windows that isn't a FULL version. Its the starter edition of Windows 7. Its between Vista and 7. I have 1 gig ram, and my processor is an Intel Atom N455 / 1.66 GHz. As far as my video card goes its a Intel GMA 3150. Basically I have a Acer d255E netbook if you want additional information.
Does anyone think LOTRO will run decently, according to the minimal standards needed?

I believe it will not run at all, and I mean not even being able to launch it.Many philosophical problems are caused by such things as the simple inability to shut up.

OK I have a Gateway laptop with these specs
Intel B960 processor dual core
Intel HD Graphics onboard DDR3
4 Gig of DDR3 ram
320 gb hd
It's a model NV77H21u
With the installation of the Microsoft Net 1.1 which I got from Microsoft it works just fine on medium settings, I run Windows 7 Home Premium, I'm not sure what the problems are for people but All I did was install the game when the game started it asked if I wanted to install Net 1.1 it then took me to the site I downloaded installed and the rest was cake.
I realized my laptop could run the game after checking with Can You Run It and saw the only problem was the Net 1.1 issue. If you haven't used that online tool to see if your system can handle the game I suggest it highly to save yourself the grief.
Some folks say it gives bad info but everytime I've used it it sems to be pretty right on for me.

ViewSonic VX2753mh Monitor
Today I replaced my 2 year old 19" monitor with a brand new 27" ViewSonic one. LOTRO was running perfectly happily on Windows 7 with my old monitor, but since installing the new monitor and drivers supplied by ViewSonic, the only way I can get LOTRO to run is in Windows XP Service Pack 2 mode. Not sure whether this is an issue with the monitor driver or graphics card driver, I've updated both to the latest versions, but still will not load in Windows 7 mode.
Anyone else recently updated their monitor and had similar issues?

LOTRO taking out Windows 7
I've had two occurrences, one in December and one today, where playing LOTRO and Windows 7 (64) crashed (black screen) and managed to corrupt a windows file. Today's was ntoskrnl.exe.
Both required a system image restore to recover. No other active applications running. One hears the 690 card fans slow down. Running 220.127.116.117 nvidia drivers. core i7 processor.
Wouldn't have thought that LOTRO or nvidia drivers could trigger such a failure.

Just an update:
I have managed to solve that issue by downloading the said .dll and copying it into my Windows/System32/ folder as well as my LOTRO Install folder.
I still have issues when the game updates though:
It constantly gives me the de-crypt and deserialize error and I have to restart the launcher a few hundred times to make it work.
It may have something to do with my ISP or the router they have provided me with. Any ideas?"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice."
