+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Now since I reinstalled Vista 32bit version and its up and running, lets go through what works what don’t.

  • Daemon Tools (check)
  • Microsoft Office (check)
  • Trillian (check)
  • VMWare Server (CHECK!)
  • Diskeeper 10 (Nope, apparently I have to go download an update for Vista, postponed)
  • Ok now the fun part starts. How to get everything working the way I want to.

    I need to start my Fedora virtual machine so I can get some development/testing done. And a wall I hit. It says that I don’t have permissions to open the file.

    While looking through my new Vista, I found out that my cpu is 64bit capable! I was like.. OMFG hell yeah! I whipped out the 64bit Vista DVD and nuked all my hard work of setting up software without even giving it a second thought… About 20 mins later, I was back in my new found love, except this time I dove right into installing software. One by one, I get basic stuff installed in following order:

  • daemon tools (went out and got the upgraded vista version) no problems
  • Microsoft Office 2007 ultimate, uh.. thank god no problems there
  • McAfee VirusScan, ofcourse problems.. knew that from 32 bit version but what the hell.. was worth a try
  • Trillian - another no problem
  • VMWare Server………………………………………….PROBLEMS! Sigh.. they don’t support

One of the developers has gone out and bought Windows Vista Ultimate edition and was talking about installing it and trying it out. I have always tried out all of the Windows flavors since 3.1 as soon as they came out and even did beta runs for NT 4, XP, 2000, 2003 and even Vista. But for some reason after installing and running beta 2 of Windows Vista, I wasn’t very impressed. But when they were talking about installing Vista, I myself got curious to find out how good/bad is the released version. So I went and got myself a copy of Vista Ultimate as well.

    I didn’t want to destroy my laptop so I decided to install it on my old computer. The specs of that computer are:
