With every new version of Windows, it makes it more difficult to keep older games (and other software) running correctly for some people's computers.

I know I've had issues with some software not working correctly on my Vista laptop that worked fine on my XP desktop.

I had to disable opening splashscreens and video for NWN to run without crashing. I also had to play around w/ in-game video settings (especially the aliasing setting).

But other than that, it runs great on my Vista laptop.

I dunno.... I've just never had a problem with Vista except for running Homeworld2 (homeworld 1 ran fine). I've barely even needed to monkey around with any settings either. The only time I've had to change how a program starts up is NWN with the 1.69 beta patches and the 1.69 final... other than that, and rayman (had to slow it down, was playing super-turbo fast Laughing )
