I know for a fact that Avid Liquid 7 needs to be 'bodged' to work under Vista , and fails completely under home.

and I have heard of nearly a hundred others which worked under XP (alot failed under that too), but fail under Vista, it is only the real mainstream products that patched the software early to take advantage of vista.

Any MS VB6 made software struggles to install under Vista (I have a set of instructions on how to munge it to work), as the installer fails to install an older dll and even then has been known to blue screen Vista.

All I was saying was, yes we are luck to have this old stock of code, lets start developing for the newer OS's / future OS's and forget about RO3, as an example.
