Is the 32-bit compatibility only on the Ultimate Edition of Vista?

if it wasn't for my older tv tuner, dazzle and webcam, I would switch to vista 64... :-(

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?

Right Click, Properties - there you can select a compatibility mode.

For the install, right click and Run As Administrator
