You're probably not going to find one. Vista lets you run old programs in 'compatibility mode' - actually, so does Windows XP. TSometimes it works, some times not but it's worth a try.

To use, you have to...

  1. right-click on the games' shortcut (either located on your desktop as an icon, or in Start -> All Programs).
  2. Once you right-click on the shortcut, click 'Properties'
  3. click on the 'Compatibility' tab at the top
  4. under the 'Compatibility mode' section, check the box that says 'Run this program in the compatibility mode for:'
  5. then choose 'windows 98' from the dropdown menu
  6. click ok when done
Good luck and I hope this helps! : )

My 2003 britannica ready reference will not work on my new computer which has vista?

A quick search from the Britannica site implies that it is only compatible with these following OS: -

  • Microsoft® Windows® 95, 98, 2000, Me, XP, or Windows NT® 4.0

  • You may wish to contact Britannica to see if a Vista/W7 Patch is available or get the 2007 version?

    I/O error

    Is this a device driver or a program like a game? If it's a device driver, then you will need to go to the devices website and download drivers for vista. Most drivers that work for windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP will not work in Vista.

    Well sir that depends on the game itself, whether its creators want to make patches to play it on vista or not, try seeing the game author's site for more information.
