Old Programs on Vista

Post by itzabo » Tue Feb 13, 2007 5:00 am

Well I figured out how to get some misbehaving older apps to work in Vista.
Don't install to Program files directory. I just made a new directory and installed there. No permissions needed to store needed ini files etc. that older apps must have to work correctly.
