    Gaming in Vista 64 -bit

    Hi,

    A game my dad recently bought cannot be installed on his C drive, So I was
    wondering if there was a way to install it on a seperate partition and
    interact with it so I can play it.
    He said to search for an answer to this question
    If you have a primary partition, which partition can you use which will
    interact with it. He said he thought the answer might be dynamic,
    I dont have a clue so any help offered would be much appreciated!
    thanks

    U didn't mention the name of game ,,,, may be ur PC facing space problem on
    C ,,, otherwise no issue has been seen with vista 64 bit like this.
    Vista 64 bit runs every game much smoothly as compared to 32 bit.

    Are there any other drive letters besides the C:, the A: (floppy) and the D:
    (CD/DVD)?

    If so you may already have another partition to use. In general when you
    install software you can change the settings, sometimes by clicking
    "advanced" or "custom" or something similar, to install in a different
    place.

    If you don't have another partition you can buy an external USB hard drive
    for under $100 to install more software than will fit on the C: drive.
