compatability issues with 64 bit vista?

this is purely out of curiosity, but how many programs/games do people KNOW have issues with 64 bit vista? It might be good for people to know

  1. I've certainly come across problems with both applications and games when using Vista x64. Most applications that do have a problem state quite clearly they aren't meant for 64-bit, but really the programs that do so usually have a separate 64-bit version. There are some that don't fit that pattern, but apparently none were notable enough for me to recall.

    I have come across two specific game issues, however, as I test a fairly large amount of titles on Vista.

    1) ArMA/Armed Assault - appears to have a bug with ATI drivers + Vista x64
    Note: I believe this is a known issue and may be fixed, but meanwhile it might be fixable by using either an older driver or the default driver (may also be possible to mod a driver)

    2) Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood - cannot install because of Starforce copy protection
    Note: This is a known issue and it seems unlikely it will be fixed officially (at least for this specific case)
  2. ok, so no other games? I suppose the older they are the less likely it is they will work generally, so anyone know any others?
  3. There's a list going on over at the H, but it's a pretty good bet that anything with a 16-bit installer is going to require a workaround if not a virtual machine. The in-between titles are hit the hardest (not too old, not too new).
  4. ok i'll look
