SL is operating fine with Vista 32bit, non-XP mode. Some textures are messed up but the game itself runs flawlessly. Let me know if I can be of assistance to anyone, I know a lot about Windows Vista.

Success running SL under Vista

System

ASUSTEK G2 Laptop

  • Memory: 2047 MB
  • OS Version: Microsoft Windows Vista (Build 6000)

More info

SL failed to run with the default driver. I modded ATI Catalyst 7.8 with the free tool from Driver Heaven (took me less than 10 minutes). The instructions says to install MSXML 4.0 - I installed MSXML 6.0 and ran the tool without problems.

Summary

Various problems using non-Administrator account in Vista

System

as above

More info

Strange things seemed to happen using a non-Administrator account under Vista that went away, with the same viewer, when run under Administrator, such as:-

  • VWR-953 Separate XML settings file not created
  • VWR-1269 Video slider is blank

While logged into the non-Administrator account, the view can be run 'As Administrator', as well as logging into Administrator to run it from there.

Summary

FAILURE to run SL so far on Vista using Intel graphics card

System

OS: Vista basic Graphics card: Mobile Intel(R) Express Chipset Family


More info

SL opens fine, I click loggin and when it gets to precaching it crashes. This is obviously from the incompatible graphics card. I've tried almost everything and I'm to cheap/poor to buy a new graphics card so I really hope Intel, SL, or Vista finds a fix soon. I've messed with vista's compatibility options, have the newest driver from Intel, reinstalled SL, emptied and re-emptied the cache. I'm currently testing supposed "cross compatible drivers" but I don't have high hopes for it working. If it, or any other cracked up configuration fixes the problem I'll let you know.

UPDATE!!! PROBLEM SOLVED!

So I've searched far and wide and finally found something that worked to fix the problem I was having. Here's a link to the page that helped me: http://softwarecommunity.intel.com/isn/Community/en-US/forums/30244543/ShowThread.aspx#30244543

Though this seems specifically for Intel graphics cards it's worth a try!!!
