I'm looking to start a list of Vista compatible applications, both paid for and free. So list what you have or know about.

Found this little gem that may be of interest to people too:
http://www.iexbeta.com/wiki/index.php/Windows_Vista_Software_Compatibility_List

For applications: http://www.ntcompatible.com/compatos1-1-1.html
For games: http://www.ntcompatible.com/compatos2-1-1.html
For hardware: http://www.ntcompatible.com/compatos3-1-1.html
You can also search for compatibility by vendor, category or OS: http://www.ntcompatible.com/compatibility.html



All applications listed are running in Vista 32Bit unless otherwise specified.

Antivirus:
AVG Free 7.5.432 - Questions, reported both working and not, sometimes services don't start cleanly and have to be manually started, AVG DOES prompt you if this is the case.
Avast - Works
NOD32 v2.7 - Works
Norton 2007 now works - if you download the latest trial version and enter your serial key.

May I ask why DVD Shrink is a "no no of an application"?

Well, you can still use it, but its a substandard product considering it hasn't been in development for a couple of years.


This thread is a great idea though, something I'll no doubt be contributing to next week when I get my copy. If the store didn't screw up our order, I'd probably be writing this from Vista :(

AVG free doesn't work properly. As in most of the time it doesn't start up with windows and has an error. You have to manually start it.

Avast works however.

the latest nero is the only one that worked for me (v 7.7.5.1).

My VLC has video playback issues, that is with the latest ATI drivers and the latest VLC software. Just get a white picture, sound works fine.

If you have a DVICO tuner, there is a Beta version of FusionHDTV available if you register at http://www.fusionhdtv.co.kr (version 3.6). Extremely quick channel changing but dodgy channel manager due to the fucked up australian channel numbers. Drivers work with media centre.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me and it'll happen to you!

trend micro internet security 2007 will work with vista.
the current version of this on the shelves dont, so what you do is go online and download the vista version of the program then instal it using the cd key you get with your purchase of the 2007 version.

Its probably worth noting which versions don't work, otherwise we may reach a point where this thread says an app doesn't work, but a newer version than when it was tested does.

In addition to the Slysoft Applications I can confirm that Slysoft CloneCD, and CloneDVD2 both work.

No problems, if people want to post what versions they are using from now on and I will update accordingly.

I have tested all below on 32-bit Vista:

My AVG works on Vista perfectly. It's version 7.5.432.

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 - works perfectly

Visual C++ Express Edition - works perfectly (SQL 2005 Server Express needs 'Visual C++ Express' SP1 to function correctly)

Quicktime 7.1.3 - works

Divx - works perfectly

Audacity 1.2.4 - works perfectly

Wordweb 4.5a (dictionary/thesaurus) - works perfectly

All above are FREEWARE (I love freeware) LOL.

Adobe Acrobat Version 8 (Vista Edition) of course works, but just a heads up that I could only install it if UAC (User Account Control) was turn on .

Otherwise it brought up temp folder error.

I haven't tried in the RTM, but I did find that Synergy worked in RC1 (I think it was the 32bit edition). I'll be getting Vista at home soon and will do another update on if its ok with the final.
http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/ is the url.

Note: If you are using the Vista machine as a client not a server it will need to be run as an administrator to access privlaged apps (admin tools, etc). But be aware that a synergy client pc can't access the "Are you sure you want to run this as admin" dialog, you'll need to directly interface with the Vista machine for that
