This program does work on windows 7 despite previous reviews, but it does not install by using the Install menu. Instead Open the disk, open folder named Data, open folder named Aura 1, click on setup.exe. Repeat for Aura 2 (not done this yet as I am just starting to play Aura 1 today). The program is similar to Myst, obviously a little dated but nevertheless very good value for money and will provide many hours of entertainment. So far it has been a fascinating beginning.
Later the next day:- Having played the game for more than several hours I think it is excellent and anyone who likes adventure games is sure to enjoy this one. As I have already said it is excellent value for money. Worth more than 5 stars. Weeks Later: Amazing game, amazing graphics. Word of caution-crashed 3 times during long sessions, advise saving and reloading after a major step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money 4 May 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Since other reviewers have mentioned it, I should say that the games are not designed to run on Windows 7, though the seller describes them as such. The manual list only Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista (unsurprisingly given that they are several years old). I played them on Windows XP.

As to the games themselves, I found them great fun, and a real challenge to someone who enjoys puzzle-oriented adventure games. Aura 1 and 2 are very much like Myst in style, though, as reviewers of the individual games have pointed out, they don't have the same polish. Yes, the plot (that runs through both games: they are, to all intents and purposes, one game) isn't anything to write home about, and the narrative in the cut scenes is rather quaint - though I found it added a nice touch of humour and individuality.
That aside, what it comes down to is a standard point and click adventure, with logical puzzles appearing at regular intervals. Some objects are difficult to find, and some of the puzzles are abstruse; I had to consult a walkthrough on several occasions, but I still enjoyed them immensely. For ten quid the pair I can't fault them.
While I can see while the other reviewers were annoyed at not being able to play on Windows 7, don't let their one-star rating affect your judgement of the gameplay. I recommend that any puzzle-gamer give them a try.

Have just finished the first one. Really enjoyed it, good graphics with some awesome environments. Would have liked Astronomy world as my wallpaper but not an option. Although easier than myst, still needed a walkthrough a couple of times. Some great puzzles of varying difficulty but all logical. The plot is a bit weak and I wasn't sure what my ultimate aim was hence four stars. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre of games. Am finding it difficult now to find adventure games without the stupid hidden object scenes. This one was right up my street and I am looking forward to Aura 2.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase
Unfortunately I can't even give this one star. It took ages to arrive. When I tried to load it onto my PC I struggled. I resorted to an internet help search and discovered other people had experienced similar issues. I managed to load part one, but it either wouldn't run or the screen was unstable - my PC did conform to the requirements specified on the disc. I tried on my sister's PC, but failed on that, too. I returned the game and got a refund. Amazon were very efficient and I was grateful, however I am disappointed as the game promised to be exactly what I wanted. It's just a shame it wouldn't work!

Myst but much easier. Pretty average really but OK to play in short bursts. Not exactly challenging. Enjoyable because of the fast progress. Good enough graphics. Well worth the cheap price it goes for now.
