    depends on what you have to begin with. in other word, if you have Windows xp Home, you will get Windows vista home. you can't upgrade to version you don't have on on your pc. it wouldn't work.

Is Calendar Creator v12 compatible with Windows Vista. System Requirements on pkg reads Windows XP (Home & Pro), SP3.1, Pentium II 300 MHz processor faster, etc.


Greetings,

It's my best understanding that it is not compatible with Vista. Were I you, I'd do a search something like "compare Calendar Creator 12 to" and review some of the programs that would pop up to see if any of them look like a possible solution. Also, you might want to make sure they'll run on Windows 7 toward the chance of a later upgrade on your part.

It might be of interest for you to know that W7 Professional or Ultimate Editions come with the opportunity to download (free) their XP Compatibility Mode software which will allow you to run any XP program that is not scheduled to be formatted for Vista or 7.

Regards,

Marcus

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You

Loading windows anytime upgrade


Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman
