Re: Windows Vista & PAF

I'm using Vista Home Premium. I tried reinstalling this & got it to work on my third attempt. Prior to that I received messages from Microsoft that certain features were no longer supported by Vista. I could not get either a backup or Gedcom to work. I don't know what was different on my 3rd attempt, did loose some pictures. I contacted technical support & was told they have done very limited research on whether it will work with Vista. The genealogy software review website lists the top 10 softwares of which PAF is 4th. It is one of only 2 products not listed as compatible. Some of the others have minor problems with Vista which may require a download. I have Family Tree Maker, know that is the case. I suspect there is a difference in computers as some people are able to use an older version of software while others have terrible problems.
