First of all make sure you downloaded/installed the 1.69 patch. Then try the following:

Rename the nwnmain.exe file to something different like -dorhalmain.exe

Right-click the actual .exe file in your NWN folder. Try setting the compatibility settings there. (Should be XP SP3.)

Also compatabilty can be set when you click on the Valsharess start up.

Heh well at least you got NWN to work. From what I hear it is a bear to navigate. Some people I know, even those who do not play NWN rolled back to win 7.
