Re: The *new* Ultimate Max Payne 1 Vista / Windows7 issues and fixes post.
I had some trouble with both versions of the patch under Win7. File permissions messed up the batch script, as well as made rasmaker.exe crash. I did the following to resolve it:
  1. Set rasmaker.exe to run as administrator
  2. Set maxbatch.bat to run as administrator
  3. Edit maxbatch.bat to make it cd to the game directory first, since running it as administrator made it start in C:\Windows\System

These steps made it work. Step 3 could be replaced by making a shortcut that gives the game directory as an argument, if one wanted a less hacky solution.
