Re: Installing Softwares designed for Windows XP
Most/all Adobe products will have to be upgraded to the Vista version.
Intuit programs will have to be upgraded to the version designed for Vista.
If programmers took shortcuts with their Windows XP programs, and didn't
write their programs as per Microsoft recommended methods, the programs may
well be useless under Vista.
Check with the program manufacturer. In fact, check the manufacturers
support section for their user groups (if they have any). Many times a
company will tell you you "must" upgrade but you will find through the user
groups that an older version works fine with a couple of modifications or
work arounds. The company is just hoping you won't check that far.
A good example is Paint Shop Pro. Corel is pushing out their Vista
"compatible" version yet my copy (version 9) works just fine.
