Almost everything works out of the box. No problem installing the try&buy -version or purchasing the full version license. Gameplay pretty much just works.
What does not
Saving the preferences. The game should store them under "Application Data" of the user profile (Application Data\Sports Interactive\EHM 2007\prefs). Instead it creates a directory structure starting with a directory named "c:" under the "My Documents\Sports Interactive\EHM 2007\" directory. I'm pretty sure there's a way around this, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find it yet.
What was not tested
Network play, performance with lots of leagues and a large/huge database.
The rating could be "Gold" if (and almost definately when) I find a way around the preference saving problems. The current workaround is to set the preferences again each time the game is started which is not a good option.
