Application software XP compatibility with Vista

  jeano 17:52 11 Apr 2007

Am planning to buy new PC which will come with Vista preinstalled and will be retaining another system with XP (SP2). I have lots of application software and I have heard that there are some compatibilty issues with XP software running on Vista. Is there a list of software that is a NO GO area so I don't waste my time installing lots of apps that will then not work?

Most of your software will only be licensed to run on one PC anyway, so if you've still got stuff installed on your XP PC you can't install it anywhere else.
