    Additional tested apps in Vista RC2

    Pulled down the ISO for RC2 on Saturday night and have just built up a Vista RC2 virtual machine. On first, brief looks, performance is a bit more sprightly I'm assuming that all the apps that I tested in RC1 still work, so will just be looking at the real troublesome ones from the previous test.

    Apps that also work in RC2 are:

    Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0


    Apps that still don't work are:

    Adobe Encore - first time I installed it, it then uninstalled itself. Second time round, all the shortcuts were put in, but on running the program, it complained about not being able to find any editing modes. This could be because I installed it before Premiere. After installing Premiere, I then went for the Repair option, which not fix things. Uninstalled Encore totally and reinstalled it, to which it uninstalled itself. Same thing happened fourth time round. Fifth time round, same again. Sixth time round, I set the properties for setup.exe to run in XP SP2 compatibility mode and as administrator. Still no joy, so I bailed out. Bottem line is I think Encore 2.0 / Vista RC2 do not get along together.

    Ahead Nero 7.2.7.0 - Same issue as before:Setup runs but then displays an error statng that Vista is not supported. Clicking OK exits setup. Not really a showstopper, as I can use version 6.6.0.14.

    Ulead Media Studio 8 - Installs OK, but apps crash on launch

    Intervideo WinDVD - Installer crashes at end of install, but appears to install OK. Activation crashes though.

    Re: Additional tested apps in Vista RC2

    Righty, I can confirm that Adobe Encore 1.5 installs without any problems if you enable XP Service Pack 2 compatiblity mode and 'Run as Administrator' on the setup.exe properties. That was my main showstopper, as I can get a codec for DVD playback. Media Studio, I don't really use, it was just an alternative to Adobe.

    Might well install RC2 on real hardware on my home PC this weekend - after creating a Ghost image of the XP install first of course!
