    Right-click -> Properties -> Compatibility tab ->
    Windows 95
    Windows 98/ME
    Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5)
    Windows 2000
    Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

    -And the Kicker-

    Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1)


    Hope that helps.
  2. I like how they didn't put SP1 of XP...
  3. Some modes of vista may not sure compatbility with all your existing software and hardware ---- suggest you use upgrade advisor to help ensure hardware compatibility (there are some sound and graphic cards that have problems with vista on older pc's --- maybe when bugs are worked out these problems may disapear --- do not believe there is any compatibility mode that will fix all these issues --- for a new pc however, all hardware should work fine and not be issue).

    From a software standpoint, most software will work with vista but not everything is guaranteed to work --- virtual pc 2007 does offer a solution if this problem should present itself to you (you can install xp in a virtual machine on vista host and run your program from there). virtual pc 2007 is free.

    Good luck to you
