Windows Vista Users Read First

Postby jimmynewguy » Wed Jan 28, 2009 1:35 am

I think I posted this in another topic but still It might help some. :D

Windows has a function called compatability mode. This allows you to run files as if you were on an older operating system.
I've noticed that many people have had problems with Vista and this is what I did to make it run on my Vista Comp. Right click GE then click the compatability mode tab. Click the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" then click the drop down menu and select Xp. Since I have done this I have had 0, Zilch, Nada, problems. I just thought I would let others know. :D

people have problems running GE on vista?
i got home premium and it works fine, of course i did remove the aero style because GE isn't compatible and causes some crashing from fullscreen
glass borders or something, but lots of programs had this problem, other than that it works perfectly :D
