I had a look at my PC Advisor DVD disc today, and saw that it boasted of a Vista User Guide, - Video Walk Through. JUST WHAT I NEEDED thought I, having recently upgraded to Vista on a 64-bit PC. So I installed the program. And, of course, it is yet another example of something that doesn't work in 64-bit Vista.
This inability of programs / devices to work with Vista is now getting beyond a joke. And for PC Advisor to package up a program to show one something about using Vista which ALSO doesn't work in Vista is just a bit much. Anybody know of anything that DOES work in Vista?
Thanks Kate B, - but Joe Public is being lured by all those adverts from Dell, Mesh, PC World etc. etc. to buy just such systems. My own PC was put together for me by a local firm, who are pushing it hard as being one of their "top-of-the-range" systems. However, it's annoying that PC Advisor issue a "How to use Vista" program on their cover disc that doesn't actually work in 64-bit Vista! I'll just have to read the book instead!
Well, Joe Public should do his research. As should you. I agree, it's annoying that the PCA disc doesn't work in 64bit Vista, though - worth taking up with Richard, the coverdisc editor, I would have thought.
There's no clicky on that post FE, can you repost it , thanks.
I'm aware of them selling AMD 64 machines, but does that always mean it comes with 64 bit windows ?
I hope your post doesn't point to these machines as there is absolutely no reference to vista 64bit as part of it or any possible problems.
As a 'sort of fan' of Dell (if you know what you're doing on their web site to get a good buy) , this would be a black mark, if they sell vista 64bit without saying clearly to the consumer that it is 64bit, as I cannot see any reference in the inspiron 1501 AMD Turion 64 x2 laptop (for example) where you can choose between the AMD® Sempron 3500+ and AMD® Turion 64 X2 TL50 , without any mention of 64bit vista.
