I have to correct prior explanations. The installation seems to be working,
but the execution of the program is failing. The program simply executes
after installation through the installer, so it looked like the installation
was failing. But the problem is still the same. The program is added to the
game explorer - by the way, all games are displayed with english covers and
support information regardless if you using a foreign game - and I can start
it. After that prior problems occur. There is no way to kill the game
process/es you have to reboot or log off to terminate the game.
It sounds like a joke that a Microsoft game ist not working properly under
Vista notwithstanding a Microsoft website is claiming it is compatible.
Is a Microsoft support guy out there? I can't contact my local Microsoft
support in germany because this game is out of support. There are no patches
available and the knowledgebase is practically useless. No Vista related
information for this product.
Sorry Microsoft, this is not a Vista compatible application...
