The Scenario Editor button does not seem to work on the HUCE opening Game Menu screen. When I push it, nothing seems to happen. The other 5 buttons seem to work. I'm using Vista.

Are you by chance running a 64 bit version of Vista?

I believe so. Windows Vista Home Premium, 64-bit operating system. Is that bad?

The Scenario Editor (SE) is a 16 bit program and will not run on a 64 bit operating system. There are ways around this, though.

Check out Troubleshooting the SE.

Thanx for the answer. I finally found that information on the Harpgamer sight.

I guess my options are:

1) upgrade Vista Home Premium to Vista Pro, then upgrade to W7 Pro.

2) upgrade Vista Home to W7 Home, then upgrade to W7 Pro.

3) backup all of my files, then do a clean install of W7 Pro or W7 Ultimate.

1 and 2 are easiest to perform, but are expensive because you have to buy 2 separate programs.

3 is harder because you have to backup up the files, then do a clean install of W7 Pro (only 1 program).

Did I get this right, or did I make it too hard.

Any thoughts of Pro vs. Ultimate?

Thanx again for your help.

Mark

Mark, don't forget option 4 of running the SE (Scenario Editor) on an old computer with Windows XP, 2000,... Even picking up an old laptop to run it probably shouldn't be out of the question. One can find used laptops with valid Windows XP licenses for right around $100.

or option 5 of using a different virtualization product if you have an old copy of Windows hanging around. Such products are VMWare Player, VirtualBox, qemu,...

imho the cleanest of your 3 solutions is solution 3) but it looks like you were already to that conclusion.
