==Operating System==
Morrowind will run on Windows 98 or later, including Windows Vista and Windows 7. For Windows Vista problems, please see [{{BSForums|topic/=781497-vistawindows-7-problems/page__view__findpost__p__11345025|the Win7/Vista this thread on the official forums]}}. For users of non-Microsoft Operating Systems, getting Morrowind to run can be a bit more complex. Linux users need to use [ Wine] to emulate DirectX. Mac owners will be able to run Morrowind through [ Boot Camp], which requires an Intel based Mac and a copy of Windows. Intel-based Macs can also run Morrowind Via Cider, downloadable as a torrent, though this route requires higher hardware specs than the original game. As a third option, installing Linux on an Intel based Macintosh computer will allow it to run Morrowind through Wine without a copy of Windows.
==Resolution and Aspect Ratio==
Morrowind is a bit picky about system configurations, and it is known to have frequent Crash-To-Desktop (CTD). These are the results of a memory leak in the game that has never been closed according to rumors, though Bethesda has never confirmed this. There's a thread on the official forums that deals with many common ways to minimize the number of crashes: [{{BSForums|topic/=31-step-by-step-ctd-crash-troubleshooting/ |Step-by-Step CTD (crash) Troubleshooting]}}.
