OK, couple of things on this one...

It does work. (Got it running on mine currently...)

The main problem is the POL viewer. But, luckily, there's a fix for that as
well.

Go here...

http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/download/media/vista01.html?pageID=media

That gives you links to a "special" version of the PlayOnline Viewer that
you have to install... (And it's important to read the instructions on how
to install. It took me three tries before I figured out what I was doing
wrong...)

Here's a brief version.

1.) Download the special POL installer.
2.) Install that downloaded POL file.
3.) Install FFXI. (This is the tricky one that I missed... Bascially,
you'll start with the FFXI installation, NOT the Playonline installation. I
kept trying to install the "old" version of the POL software on top of the
one that I had downloaded.

If this doesn't help, let me know.

Actually Final Fantasy XI came out about 5 years ago, roughly.

Check the other message, just have to upgrade the Play OnLine Updater, and
the game will work.
