Where is "Add New Programs"?
Ok, I can see that "Add Remove Programs" (appwiz.cpl) has changed to
"Programs and Features" in Vista.

But what happened to the "Add New Programs" tab? Is there a security
setting to enable it?

Thanks.

Re: Where is "Add New Programs"?
Add new programs is something that has not really been needed for a few
years now, in fact I can not remember using it for about 10 years. Just
insert the CD or DVD and the program installer should start. If the program
is designed improperly you may have to browse the CD or DVD to find the
"setup" or "install" file. Then run this file. The program will install.
