Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

Issues with Vista

\015 I need help with Creata Card. It is not compatabile with Vista\015

Answers :

Okay, Install it the way you normally would. Go into the start menu and find it's shortcut, right click on the shortcut and select properties, then select open file location. That will open the actual directory of the file. Then right click on the file that is highlighted and select properties, then go to the compatibility tab and turn on compatibility mode for Win XP. Now the software will run on the vista computer.

Hope this helps,

If it is not compatible, you mean there are no drivers for it?
The only thing you could try is to install the XP drivers in Vista in the compatibility mode (assuming you have XP drivers).
