Ive been running Vista since shortly after RTM and havent seen anything id classify as an 'incompatibility' in a long time. which left me wondering, what software is actually incompatible with Vista?
Ok first some ground rules:
- If you want to list an incompatibility, you must have been the person who witnessed it. (no friend of a friend told me program X doesn't work)
- It must have worked with XP.
- Must have been tested with the most recent version of the software.
- If the Hardware/Software was not 'on the shelf' at the time Vista RTMed, then Im not counting it (the only exception is if its a Microsoft Hardware/Software Product -Example: Win2k cant share files with Vista -of course it can thats just an example)
Use some common sense. -if you are attempting to connect Vista via ICS to share a HP deskjet 540c printer via a 50 foot adhoc wireless connection to a 10 year old win2k machine, Vista isnt the weak link there.

- Nero 6 - last version released 03-21-2007 (2 months after Vista Launch) Vista compatibility was NOT advertised as a feature but according to the incompatibility ground rules i set initially, im adding to to the list
[spoiler]__Minor issues, or specific features not working:__
- Cisco VPN Client: Smartcard support is broken
- Some VNC versions (i.e. TightVNC): won't run in service mode Ultra VNC reported as working with no issues.
[spoiler]__Works, but with problems:__
- HDTach - only in compatibility mode -GrofLuigi pointed out that compatibility mode is not ideal for a benchmarking program
- modifyPE - only in compatibility mode
