    Microsoft. You folks better fix that. LOL.

    I'm getting the error. It says AOL Instant Messenger is not compatible with
    this version of Windows. For more details, contact AOL.

    This has to be a cute little feature.

    I tried AIM Triton (5.9 ; the latest and best)
    And I also tried AIM 5 version .3595.

    How about asking AOL if and when they will be making a version compatible
    with Vista.......? It's not Microsoft's problem ;)

  3. It is AOHell's problem to make their software compatible with the new
    version of Windows, not the other way around.

    Here's where it gets more interesting.

    It does WORK, it just doesnt work under my named account. It only works
    under "Administrator"

    The plot thickens.

  6. I don't mind AIM... it's a solid protocol. The problem is AOL's supplied
    client is awful. (I use Gaim.)
