    Vista Hardware Assessment Tool

    Dear Windows Vista Hardware Assessment Beta Program Participant,

    Windows Vista Hardware Assessment has launched and is now available for a free download at:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/wvha

    Thank you for participating in this Beta program. Your feedback was vital to the success of this program.

    ...The beta didn't work on my Vista machine (which has now gone to OS graveyard - I'm back on MCE thank god!) so will be trying this again... how about we all post our results for a laugh?

    Re: Vista Hardware Assessment Tool

    What a complete load of pants this tool is....

    There are dozens of free tools that do a better job without the hassle or the overhead.

    Whatever you do, do not download an install this onto a critical server/pc.
    It wants to install SQL Express 2005 as part of the setup and if you are already pushing the envelope (which most schools seem to do) this is just the app to push your system over the edge and leave you with a big pile of pooh to clean up.

    Microsoft get 0 out of 10 for this one...
    I say, don't waste your time or your bandwidth with it.
