Since you haven't specified what program it is no one can give you specific
help with it.
You should check on the software author's web site for all the program to
see about Vista compatibility. Many will work, but some won't.
Also you can try installing the program in compatibility mode. Right click
the installation file | properties | Compatibility tab. Put a a check in
the box for the mode you want. Also many installation programs need to run
as administrator so when running it right click on the setup file and chose
Run as Administrator.
