    I dont seem to have the compatability wizard here. is it only for those who
    upgrade? Is it hidden somewheres else on VISTA? I looked under
    programs/accessories not there.

    So far I found the following programs NOT FULLY COMPATABLE with VISTA

    msn premium
    norton security 2006

    I didnt think of running compat wiz back then when I just upgraded from win
    xp pro but now with everything gone there's no compat wizard to even try.


    VISTA pretty to look at but dont use!
    WIN XP PRO I sure miss ya!!

  2. If you right click on a program or installer icon don't you get a context
    menu with the Compatibility Mode option on it?

    To get the compatibility wizard - Click on Start, then Help and Support and
    type in the search box for Compatibility Wizard. I hav not found a direct
    way to acces it thru Vista but this way will start the wizard for me.

    no I dont think I see it when I tried to install my keyboard drivers since
    not all the buttons work correctly but still says this prog isnt not
    compatable wth this system.

    oh well supposed to be just a testing OS so it is.

    Has anyone else installed a program with compatibility wizard and when it
    didn't work tried to uninstall and find it goes thru the motions but doesn't
    uninstall. Haven't had any problem uninstalling any other program.
