vista
    #11225797 - 10/11/09 12:09 PM (8 years, 8 days ago)

Will all my xp programs continue to work if I upgrade to vista? Like my alcohol120% and other utility type programs. Or are they all old news? Does vista have the 'run this program under xp' mode?  Thanks for the advice.

Vista has a compatibility program that believe checks for that, I know it does drivers and all that, vista has been out for a while so a lot of programs have been upgraded for it, except older programs form the 90's  that have to access Hardware directly, like DOS programs, Vista frowns upon that :frown: but there is a run in XP compatibility mode.. Windows 7 has a xp virtual environment which is I believe suppose to run older programs, haven't done to much research into it. I'd recommend 7 for your OS, but you can't upgrade to it if your on XP.

Most programs will run fine, i currently use alcohol 120 without a problem. Since ive been using vista i think ive ran into one program that gave me a problem. The rest have been fine

your really should just install 7.  it runs a lot smoother than vista, besides, vista will be obsolete in a few more days.  if you can't get a program to work, u can always make a 30 gig partition on your hdd and keep xp installed as well.

thanks for the info. I got 64 bit vista ultimate installed and it seems to be fine. I'll need to get all my proggies on and try them out. One thing about 64 bit.... adobe flash player doesn't seem to work on 64 bit browsers other than IE.  I exclusivly use FF with the no script addon. Now with the new OS flash player won't install. Any ideas?

weird, i use flash on 64 bit in firefox, as adobe has released a 64 bit flash player.  I do use linux and not windows however...figured it would just be a few double clicks away on windows, as most things are...

peace
