    Help, does anyone know how to install this program on vista
    I have been to their help site, followed their instruction and down loaded the patch.
    I still get run error messages and even when I manage to open the program can not use the menu.

    1)Upgrade to Windows 7. It kicks ass

    2)If that doesn' work , get into the folder where the program is installed, like "program files/convekta/total chess or whatever. Right click on the main file of the program (probably an exe file with a large file size). Click Properties/compatibility. then make it compatible with xp. and click on the little box that says "run this program as an administrator."

    maybe this could work.

    I have tried that. Thank you very much for your help. It say it vista compatible on the package, I can’t see it myself.
