compatability issues

  Boy Zone 20:48 28 Dec 2007

I'm about to purchase a new desk top. I guess this will come with Vista preloaded, and this is causing me some concern with the software that I use, eg Adobe CS3 master collection software, office 2003, Dragon, Nod 32, MS autoroute, epson printer/scanner.
I've heard that some 3rd parties don't support Vista and I'll need to purchase new s/w.
I don't want to have to buy new s/w and looking at especially Adobe I'm concerned about this issue.
Also I guess new m/c's don't come with a full Vista disk supplied.
Any advise?

but as far as I know it runs perfectly in Vista, as does MS Office 2003. As far as Dragon applications are concerned, all of them are supported, but you'll probably need to download an update from Nuance.

click here to get that.

I know of no Vista-specific problems with MS autoroute.

You may need to download a Vista driver for your Epson product, but you can click here to check that.
