Is this original copy or pirate?

The problem is this. Those dll files exist in Windows, but also exist in the Halo install directory. The versions installed with Halo are older, and not compatible with Win7.

Either rename the files in your Halo directory, or replace them with newer versions from your %windir%\sysWOW64 or %windir%\system32 directory.

Hi larry,
I renamed the two files by adding "old" to their file names in the game file.
I then copied the mf.dll and mfplat.dll files from windows 7 to the game file.
when I attempt to start the game noe, the message is "the procedure entry point MFUnlockWorrkQue could not be located in the dynamic link library MFPlat.dll" can you suggest the next step?
again, any help much appreciated.

That is correct. Halo 2 requires Vista or above.

Have you tried running the game in Vista compatibility mode?
