Vista compatability ? there are many games and downloads that worked perfectly ok in Windows XP. so Vista has a compatability mode which should enable one to play certain games that XP could but it does not, is this a failing in Vista or do we wait for an update from Microsoft to enable this problem?

XP has a compatibility mode too, if you look at the history of Windows, you will understand why. I'm not condoning it, but MS are committed to providing some kind of backward compatibility (that may change with Vista's successor)

I agree that the Vista compatability mode doesn't make all old progs work but then again neither did the XP compatability mode.

Many thanks to brundle and Pine Man you have both made valid points which I note and thank you for but just wish Vista would play some of the software and am hoping Vista may make changes to compatability mode in due course.
