Answers :

Hi Manpha,
\015\012Sorry but your older games will not work on Vista.
\015\012This is because Vista is a 64bit operating system and most games are either 32bit or even 16bit.
\015\012Older games also do not have the sound and graphic capabilities that newer games do and most graphics cards use shaders and Open GL drivers which older games do not have.
\015\012Sorry but you will have to upgrade your games or buy an older machine just to run your games on.
\015\012I have my work machine, my games machine ( for new games like Halo 2 and Unreal) and then I also have a dual boot machine for games like Solder of Fortune and Far Cry, this machine can boot into Windoze XP or Windoze 98, which ever I choose from the boot menu.
\015\012It's a pain in the neck I know but progress makes perfect!!!
