ened my vista dvd should arrive next week. did you just put the xp disc in the drive to extract the file and it install automatically or download the zipped file. how did you unzip and install on the vista set up in the end.
I downloaded the zipped file from sonicsam and double clicked on the Folder. This opened another folder which I opened and the second file down is Pinball.exe. click on that and you are away (apart from the Vista habit of asking you if you wish to continue - a minor irritation).
I didn't really want it as much as my wife so I just left it in a Download folder.
If you want, obviously you can create a shortcut on your Start Menu.
To answer your question Vista does it for you and there is no compatibility issue.
