Never winter nights 2 works fine on Vista.

But if what I think is right, you don't have a very good videocard.
This might also be the problem with your error message.

    You are not the only one with this problem.
    There are many people around with your graphics card (it's just internal video memory) and games on vista.
    You should try upgrading your computer with a new graphics card.
    First check your motherboard, if it has a PCI-e or AGP slot.
    Best is to have a PCI-e card. If your computer does not feature such slot, look for AGP, and if you have none of these, you should get a PCI card.

    You need to install the drivers for the gamepad. If you don't have a driver cd with drivers for Vista, give the make and model of your gamepad. If vista-drivers exist for that gamepad, i will tell you how to download them...

    You are right about your graphics card. Few (most high-end) notebooks allow you to replace the graphics card. I have to say, that notebooks with a powerful graphics card are rather expensive.

    It seems no drivers exist for Tesun Controllers for Windows XP or Vista. There are many people looking for it online. It seems they were made for Win 98 or something:)
    I think, you'd better get a more common gamepad. Yours is a chinese one. I guess you bought it from Ebay or something?

You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.
