Windows Vista - Application Compatibility Issues

This document details application vendor support for Vista and the results of software compatibility testing with the Windows Vista 32-bit operating system. All applications were tested on a fresh Windows Vista build, not an upgrade installation from Windows XP.

Windows 9x/2000/XP/Vista
UNSUPPORTED

NOTE: Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista are no longer supported by the Help Desk. We can only provide best effort support. If we are unable to resolve your Windows 9x/2000/XP/Vista issue, you may be able to find help in Microsoft's Knowledge Base.

These products are no longer actively supported by Microsoft. No further development will take place on these products and security updates are no longer issued. It is highly recommended that you upgrade to Windows 10, 8, or 7.

Please note that most vendors are only recently supporting Vista. The version of the software in use on your computer may need to be patched in order for it to function correctly on Windows Vista. Please visit the vendor website if you have any questions on Vista compatibility.

Microsoft has released a list of applications that have earned the "Certified for Windows Vista" logo or the "Works with Windows Vista" logo. Please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/933305 for details.

If you would like to include your campus-wide application here, please use the "I have comments" button at the bottom of this page. Include your application name, Vista compatibility information, your name, department, and email address. Your contact information will be posted with the application information.
