    i just bought a game and it aparently wont work on vista. other games when
    you look at there specifications dont day vista supported because it simply
    wasnt created when the game came out. i was thinking this would be the case
    for this game but it isnt. is there anyway to somehow override the install so
    it doesnt give me an error message saying O.S. not supported?

    Knowing what game it is would help. But it sounds like it could be resolved
    by using compatibility mode (right-click the games shortcut and go to
    properties -> compatibility and put it in XP mode).

    If it's the installation routine that says OS not supported, leave the disk
    in the drive and try right clicking on the setup file go to properties and
    select compatibility mode XP SP2.
