Yes, I do. I am running a 64-bit Windows 7 and King's Bounty Crossworlds runs just fine.

I never finished the thing because they'd always close down the bloody lab before I got anywhere significant, and there were saving issues I believe too. For nestalgic reasons I may pick this up again and install.
The Game rocks...period! My wife still plays HOMM3 to this day and we both like all KB games!
Just finished KB "The Legend" . Awesome game!!! Thanks for the recommendation. I look forward to playing the rest of the trilogy. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether to move on to the Armored Princess or try another game of The Legend. I could see a little replay value. I could be another character instead of the warrior, play the last quarter of the game with dragons, elves, or undead army. I married the demoness and used demons before I even reached the elves. They pretty much rolled right through the last 3 continents... but still extremely fun! Dragon enemies were a bit tougher but as long as you replenished your troops, no problems at all.
Thanks again for your help.
You can say you are finished with KB/AP when you beat the game on hardest difficulty with zero losses, like me. There are many strategies to do this.
How someone can say that H5/H6 is better than KB is beyond me.
KB has well written code, good optimazation opposite to H5/H6.
KB has very enjoyable spells that brings new layers of tactics opposite to H5/H6.
KB is like kinder suprise thx to randomization of monsters and items.
Combat is enjoayble, nice paced.
Cool mix of real time adventure and turn fights.
... many more...
Homm3->Disciples2->KB this is how it looks for me now.
KB is a super solid game. A lot of replayability value.
To OP, I'd suggest you move on to AP and play that as something else than warrior. Than come back to TL and replay that. It will bring a bit of nostalgia, as the game doesn't have all the extra goodies in AP.
On a side note, I'm looking forward to the new expansion.
All the new kings bounty games are superior to HOMM in many ways. The campaign is ridiculously long and varied and there are a lot of different strategies and spells. Best of all for me, it doesn't stutter and lag like HOMM 6 does. Homm 5 seems boring by comparison. The only thing I miss was having multiple heroes. It's basically more like an RPG but with a heroes motif. Actually the originally Kings Bounty game was created before HOMM was, and HOMM is actually a spin off.
Just wanted to throw my $.02 on the KB games vs HOMM. KB wins hands down, overall more stable and as previous posters have mentioned a much deeper game. The only thing that HOMM has over it is the better graphics and the cut scenes. If you havent picked up KB or the Crossworlds expansion you should do so, I got mine for ~8-9 bucks on Steam, prolly one of my best investments in games.
Note that while combat is quite similar (Especially since both games use stacks - I can't think of any other game that uses like this), the bits between are quite different. No city-building at all, it's all about quests (and there are no discrete missions).
Anyway, the series is regularly available at a discount on Steam. You can get it all for less than 10 bucks. (Except Legions, which is playable on Facebook and Kongregate. It's either free or "freemium". Apparently, they're working on iWhatever and Android versions, too.) Even if you only like it half as much as Heroes, you get more bang for your buck that way. Can't really go that wrong with 10 bucks.
Amazon.com has it for 5 bucks as a download, but I can't tell you anything about that service.
