General Development "Programming is hard. Don't ever feel bad because you aren't as good at 'just googling it' as the person next to you. Don't ever let hackathon snobs talk you out of creating the next Twitter for cats or Yelp for public washrooms. Even the dumbest ideas (like trying to make animated polygons disappear and reappear) will help you improve as a programmer. Learning to program is largely about learning to learn - and the best way to learn is to do." For some reason, I love this short story.

I wouldn't really know, I never had vista on any of my machines. I don't have a 32bit copy of win7 either.

OK - it's probably not a Vista thing then, but just the long-mode lack of VME ;)

I've read elsewhere that the windows-xp mode emulator can run dos applications without issue (other than being slow), but microsoft didn't make it available on the edition of win7 that came with my system so I haven't tried it.

Would probably work, since it's basically a full copy of XP running in VirtualPC... quite a bit overkill of DosBox or the like can solve the problem ;)
