  • <p>Sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems with Vista. </p> <p>I do want to call out that the issues you have described do not appear to be directly related to the Enable WinHlp Macros Fix It that you've commented on.</p> <p>However, I would like to provide a few suggestions in regards to the other concerns you’ve noted:</p> <p>1) If you have an older version of Adobe you might need an update or a newer version depending on if your version was designed to work with Windows Vista.</p> <p>2) Adobe has a replacement media option that you could research in obtaining replacement CDs for any Adobe software that came pre-installed or may be miss-placed. <a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://www.adobe.com/support/service/replacemedia.html">http://www.adobe.com/support/service/replacemedia.html</a> Again I would first check to ensure that the version of Adobe software you are referencing is compatible with Vista.</p> <p>3) Ensure that your printer is supported by Windows Vista by reviewing the HCL here &gt; <a rel="nofollow" target="_new" href="http://winqual.microsoft.com/HCL/ProductList.aspx?m=v&amp;cid=900&amp;g=d">http://winqual.microsoft.com/HCL/ProductList.aspx?m=v&amp;cid=900&amp;g=d</a> &nbsp;</p> <p>Best wishes,</p> <p>-Tommy</p>

  • <p>Vista... &nbsp;am trying to put in a new font for my E-mails (Vivaldi Italic, which is in the PC under Fonts), but it just won't happen. &nbsp;I tried the &quot;Fix it for me&quot; (cause I'm a beginner with all PC's and most explanations R Greek to me). &nbsp;It's sez: it won't work because Vista needs WinHlp32 Macros, but it won't install. &nbsp;Is it Vista/me or both? &nbsp;Thanks, Cy</p>
