At the moment, that seems unlikely. ScummVM supports Sierra's AGI games, but not the more recent SCI games.

The FreeSCI project may support it eventually, but there's no telling if or when that will happen. The DOS version of the game might work with DOSbox but I haven't tried this myself.

The DOS version runs very nicely in DOSBox, in fact it is the only way past the very nasty firecracker speed bug. The problem is that most versions of the game do not include the DOS interpretor. I have made a patch that upgrades some earlier versions to version 2, which comes with the DOS interpretor. It is included with my DOSBox upgrade patch for the new collection.

is KQ7 actually SCI based? It has such a unique style that i figured it was either a new interpreter or at the very least a heavily modified sci.

I got curious and looked at Wikipedia.
KQ7 is apparently SCI2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierra%27s_Creative_Interpreter#SCI2_.282.xxx.xxx.29)

I really ought to make more of an effort to play these games.

KQ7 is a pain to get running in it's normal raw form, so far I have mine rigged from the disc files and paths locations blah blah I forget the details Very Happy But really, it'd be sweet to have this game supported in SCUMMVM as it's a great game and really missing a chapter is a bit of an annoyance Very Happy

It'd be like running Monkey Island 1 and 2 but not 3 (and yeah I know it's supported)

Is the game supported with version 1.7.0?
I've installed DOS/Floppy/CD
with sierra Installers or without but nothing works.
Not on WinXP (Netbook) or on Win7 (DosBox, Workarounds)
I've merged any kind of installation with installed game or
installed it and merged with missing files from Floppy/CD.

Same situation with Police Quest IV!
I want to play the old days on my Tab3

Neither King's Quest VII nor Police Quest IV are supported yet.
You can see the list of supported games at http://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/.
