Well I at last got away from work to go and collect my new rig yesterday... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Vista looks very nice, but looks aren't everything and that's about all it has going for it as far as I can see at the moment... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif So far it has refused to install both my Pacific Fighters and Adobe Photoshop 7... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif No amount of fooling it into installing these two programs would work and after faffing about till 2.00am I turned it off, swearing to install XP Pro later this evening... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

This morning I remembered there was a couple of threads on the subject of installing PF with Vista, can someone point me in their direction please... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hmmm... Yes I found that out as well, before I got Vista! Funny I tried installing Strike Fighters (And you know how old that is... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif ) and it worked first time no problem with absolutely no faffing, PF on the other hand... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Nothing!
