Legacy programs often do not run on Vista. However, once you install them there are a few options. First of all, go to the program websites and see if they have Vista upgrades. If not, right-click on the program icon and select properties. On the properties screen, select the compatibility tab and select Windows XP SP2. That often works. Also, you may have to right-click on the icon and select run as administrator.

Start Vista's "Program Compatibility Wizard".
Say that you want to install a Windows XP program.
Choose the 'setup.exe' on the CD-ROM drive, and install the software.

My Windows Vista SP1 isn't compatible with my Canon PIXMA MP600


You can download the vista drivers here. Under drivers and support then choose your operating system. Make sure to select the correct Vista for your system they have vista and vista 64. You can find which you are running by right clicking on my computer and choosing properties. It is likely normal Vista (Vista 32).

Go to the manufacturers web site to see if they have a driver for Vista,
but you may also be able to run it in "compatibility mode".
Not all older programs will work under Vista.
Software vendors are working to release Vista-compatible versions everday but in the mean time you can run the program in "Compatibility Mode."To do so:
  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Location the programs folder(My computerC:Program filesPhillips) and find the executable.
  3. Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
  6. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista or just go with XP if unknown,you can always change it again..
  7. If necessary, select the option to run the program as an administrator.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Start your program!

Most programs written for Windows XP also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows.
• Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
NoteTo find out if your programs (or programs you plan to buy) are compatible with Windows Vista, go online to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center. This website contains a comprehensive list of programs, computers, and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.
