It is quite possible that the program is simply not compatible with Vista.
Programs that install hardware drivers such as for printers may not work
because the underlying driver structure for Vista is different from XP. I
have a printer program called ClickBook that lets me do booklets for
instance that simply will not work in Vista. You may have to wait till a
Vista version for the program comes out. That said there is one more thing
you can try, that is to run the program in an emulator mode.
Right click on the program, select properties, then select the compatibility
tab, select a compatibility mode option (XP SP2).
If it is a hardware driver issue this will probably still not work but worth
