  4. Is the 32-bit compatibility only on the Ultimate Edition of Vista?
  5. All version of Vista 64-bit can run 32-bit Apps.
  6. if it wasn't for my older tv tuner, dazzle and webcam, I would switch to vista 64... :-(
  7. I got Vista 64 and i tried to install Battlefield 2 and Warcraft3 on my Vista 64 and was not able to :non: run them. On BF2 i got the following message: this 32 bits application cannot run under Vista and on Warcraft3 it won't even start (i only see the hourglass running endlessly).

    In which directory should i install my game to make them work? is there a special application that i need to run in order to make my 32 bits game work under Vista64?
