Problems installing your programs?

  De Marcus™ 21:57 18 Sep 2006

Anyone finding problems with programs that aren't installing, working properly or crashing, etc should try the program compatibility wizard (found on the desktop after a fresh install if you haven't deleted it), expecially with this latest release. 4 programs I was having bother with have now installed fine using the compatibility wizard. I've also noted that disabling the desktop composition was the most successful change to make (Vista will revert to a basic GUI).

Some programs simply won't work, but if you value any particular software it's worth a try.

It's essentially the rendering of the graphics of the desktop.
