    I have the complete version (includes the two expansion packs). It seems to
    run fine on 32-bit vista ultimate, however, it does have an annoying
    tendency to crash and cause my pc to lock up, requiring power off or reset.
    Havent tried to fix it yet, but im sure im not the only person with the
    problem.

    It's a Games for Windows branded title, so yes. All Games for Windows
    branded titles have to work on Windows Vista, and that includes both 32-bit
    and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

    Of course, the GOLD edition and the Expansion pack are the ones that carry
    the branding, and the original game does not, but you should be able to get
    it to work on Windows Vista as is or with the latest patch.

    Of course, the website should list Windows Vista too.
