NOTES:

  • An italic entry denotes a piece of software that was reported to work previously, but is unconfirmed for this particular build. Therefore, new entries should generally NOT be italicized.
  • Please mention the version/build number of the software and if it applies to the 32 or the 64 Bit Beta OS!
  • All 16 Bit software will fail to run on Vista as such legacy support has been removed from the OS!
  • To GREATLY increase the likelihood of compatibility with installer software, be sure your user account is a member of the new "Trusted Installers" group!!!
