    AXP and Vista... ?

    Simple answer, it does not work. There is no Vista compatible version available yet. AXP (and MC) only run on Windows XP Professional with Service pack 2 installed.

    There is a downgrade policy at Microsoft but it does not apply to all. Even more it is usefull to check if all drivers that are needed for your specific system are available for XP when downgrading.

    Quote from the microsoft site:

     

     

    OEM downgrade rights for desktop PC operating systems apply to Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate as stated in the License Terms. Please note, OEM downgrade versions of Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate are limited to Windows XP Professional (including Windows XP Tablet PC Edition and Windows XP x64 Edition). End users can use the following media for their downgrade: Volume Licensing media (provided the end user has a Volume Licensing agreement), retail (FPP), or system builder hologram CD (provided the software is acquired in accordance with the Microsoft OEM System Builder License). Use of the downgraded operating system is governed by the Windows Vista Business License Terms, and the end user cannot use both the downgrade operating system and Windows Vista Business. There are no downgrade rights granted for Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows Vista Home Premium.
