    How to run programs as vista user

    Are you sitting and wondering. Why can't I run this program?
    I've readed everywhere and it says I only have to run it as an administrator.
    But still isn't working?
    Well here is the solution!
    Step by Step and with pictures.



    Start with rightclicking the icon.
    press properties>compatability.






    Check the box run this program in compatability mode for:
    Choose Windows vista (service pack 1) for 32 users
    Choose Windows vista ( service pack 2) for 64 users.
    down at privilege check the box.






    Voiala you can run it as vista user.
    :wave:

    Then you download it from either Warez or any torrent place.

    soo, Okay you decide to download it from a torrent.
    You never know if it's 100 % safe.
    and NO if you can run windows vista that doesnt mean you can run windows 7.
    I got a computer with windows vista. and another with windows 7.
    Tried to install windows 7 on my comp with windows vista and everything worked as a man that hasnt been sleeping for years. took me 10 min to open My browser.
    If you're here only to get your posts up skip it please.

    Windows 7 requires like less or the saem as XP and as said if you can run vista you can easily run 7. And yeah just download it.

    Windows 7 is amazing compared to vista so if your still using vista then its time to upgrade.

    HOWEVER

    this guide does also work for windows 7 in the compatibility mode stuff, even tho you can get XP mode in windows 7

    edit:
    If you're here only to get your posts up skip it please.
    I have over 5k so why would i care?

    and NO if you can run windows vista that doesnt mean you can run windows 7.
    Yes it does all pc thats run vista can run windows 7
    I don't need bad comments I'm just trying to help the people that doesnt know.
    Just pointing out that windows 7 is the same as vista in terms of the
    compatibility mode stuff
    kkthx

    True but please remember ofcourse if your comp can run windows vista it can run windows 7 but your comp will go 100 % slower. tried it myself.

    As you seem to point out mistakes Me and 2d have done, I can tell you:
    This is NOT a World of Warcraft guide, where do you see the World of Warcraft relation?
    It's a General guide as said, not a wow guide. Belong in THIS SECTION.

    Don't be so lazy and just delete the thread+repost there. At least, if you still think this guide is of any use for anyone.

    Right click + 'Run as administrator'

    Choose Windows vista (service pack 1) for 32 users
    Choose Windows vista ( service pack 2) for 64 users.
    Absolute bullshit.

    If you really need to do that to get a program running, I can tell you that there are problems with your hardware and/or software configuration, not problems with Windows Vista itself.
    Just my twocents

    wait a sec. isnt it supposed to let it run in xp mode instead of vista pack 1/2 ? furthermore i think everyone knows how to do this (not just run as administrator) + it doesnt work for all programs e.g. the godfather. when you try to play it you first have to delete some videos in the installation folder.
