I currently have the final release of Windows Vista Ultimate. I am testing some of the software I use and was disappointed to learn that this was one of a few programs that did not function properly in vista. Perhaps there is a quick fix for this and I am simply doing something wrong... I tried the beta also and that did not resolve the issue for me. If there is anything I can do to be of assistance in fixing this, please let me know. On clicking connect under windows vista I recieve the following unhandled exception:

Here's how you can make it work with Vista. I'll work on a fix once I have my dev environment up and running, but this should do for the time being.

- Open Windows Explorer and browse to c:\program files\www.wintin.org
- Right click on Wintin.exe and select Properties
- Select the Compatibility tab
- Check 'Run this program in Compatibility mode for Windows XP (SP2)'
- Press ok to close the dialog

regards

William

I tried that before I posted. It does not work. I'll just have to wait for the solution to be released.

hmm, it works for me, which is going to make it difficult to track the problem down. Exactly when does the error occur? Are you using the released version of Vista or a beta?

just to clarify this is the message i get:

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system>
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.

I'm still using XP so I'm not experiencing this issue, but perhaps this is somehow related -- the changelog for PuTTY 0.59 (released 2007-01-24) included:

    Bug fix: IPv6 should now work on Windows Vista.

Actually, it sounds like magic library had a vista update too:
    Version 5.1 - Full support for Vista
I wonder if they'd tell you what changes were necessary so you could update the freeware version (if what was causing them vista issues wasn't added since they went comericial).

I've been looking at this again, and the compatibility setting isn't the issue. The problem is that Wintin needs to run as administrator (I know why, it's quite complex, and it's not really fixable).

I'll build a version that will do this automatically, but for the time being this should work:

- Open Windows Explorer and browse to c:\program files\www.wintin.org\wintin.net
- Right click on the Wintin program and select Properties
- Select the Compatibility tab
- Check the box 'run this program as an administrator;

Please let me know.

thanks

William
