By the looks of it, no patch is necessary. The only thing it requires to run is administrator privileges. To do this you can do it one of two ways.

Rightclick the quickbooks pro icon.
Goto Properties
Select the tab labeled "Compatibility"
On the bottom of that tab put a check in box captioned "Run this program as an administrator"
Then press Apply and OK.

Now every time you startup this program it will be with administrator privileges.

I am trying to move my Bookkeeper program to a new Vista Computer. I am getting a message that I am trying to run an older version of Bookkeeper with newer pogram. My old computer is XP and the new one...


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.

I am attempting to find a patch so that I can run my Webster's New World Dictionary & Thesaurus on Windows Vista. This ran great on XP, and I was told there may be a patch for Vista.


by the looks of it there is a 6.3 release of the software that is vista compatable.

You can also call their techs at 1-800-696-0514 to find out if this is a update you can aquire.

below is a link to the newer version on amazon.

Vista


The tests will have told you which version of Vista Microsoft think your machine will run best, based on its specifications and performance; however, this may not be the best version for your NEEDS, just for your HARDWARE.

Unless you specifically need the extra options that Vista Business has, most people who use Vista are quite content with Home Premium. Check the various versions out on the Microsoft Site and decide which best serves your needs, bearing in mind you can easily go up to Business without your machine being stressed.

Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
