    The main part of sims does however I'd suspect some of the old add ons don't.

    However your Vista Business licences might well have downgrade rights.

    Yeah, I was just about to say that as well - check as your Viz Biz may allow you to downgrade to XP.

    I have been using SIMS on Vista Business for nearly 6 months and it has never let me down yet.

    No, it isn't. I checked on the hardware spec document on supportnet before posting.

    ie. "Operating System (32‐bit only) —Microsoft® Windows XP Pro (SP2 and above), Microsoft Windows Vista Business (SP2) and Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (SP1).
    Support for Windows 7 (64‐bit) will commence with the release of the SIMS 2010 Autumn Release. Please note that
    this does not include support for 16‐bit applications, such as Nova‐T4 and legacy Timetable Printing routines. "

    ie. 64bit Windows 7 support is there, but XP and Vista support is 32bit according to that. And the 64bit support does not include the old stuff.

    I think you'll find that's an oversight. Win XP 64 bit isn't but Vista\7\2008\2008R2 are supported (either 64 or 32)
