Downgrading from Vista Basic to XP

\015 Hello. I recently bought a new computer that came with Windows Vista Basic. The only problem is that my Oxford Thesaurus CD-rom isn't compatible with it like it was with Windows XP on my last computer. Does anyone know if it's possible to downgrade from Vista Basic to XP?\015

Answers :

Hi
\015\012
\015\012Have you tried the "compatability" mode built into Vista. Also go to Microsfts site and search for answers as they now have better number of "fixes" to issues similar to yours.
