win vista Application Compatibility & Problems on Drivers
Recently I have researched and ask some people that are using Microsofts Windows Vista Operating system on their PC and ask them what are the usual problems they are encountering. Ive gathered a lot of respond to them and their Vista Problems. As the result of my personal survey I found out and I also agree that the main problems of Vista are Compatibility issues and Driver problems.
Application Compatibility issues
Lots of old programs do not work on Windows Vista. Thats because many software developers created applications that function only if the user has full administrative privileges. With the introduction of User Access Control or UAC and other system changes, lots of old applications have problems. Up to now lots of other applications have problems. Most of these problems are encountered with applications that install legacy drivers in order to function. Other applications just refuse to install even though they could work on Windows Vista. This problem is due to the poor design of their installer. For example, some applications ask for the installation of Microsoft.NET Framework version 1.1 or 2.0. They wont install even though Windows Vista has a newer version of .NET Framework.
