I know Vista hasn't been officially "greenlighted".

But in a way it was, so here goes my little report.

I've been playing this last campaign (CSA, my first on Vista) for a while now, and well, somehow I have allowed myself not to look too closely at the "Governors" reports part with "wants". I played some 10-15 campaigns before on XP 64, and got used to getting the "Govner A requests/demands B" etc. notes. Now, (Late Jan, 1863) I took my first close look, and I can see that half of my governors actually do demand stuff! Well - I do not remember being notified even once with the little window on turn's end...

Anybody similar experience? And, please, don't give me "you have to focus, Trinity" ;-) There were no notifs. That's it.

PS. For the "fastest draws" (I know you are there!): licenced Vista, licenced game.

This game is "green lighted" for Vista and does work fine on it. Please do check if you had the notification turned on.

I can't get it to run on mine, I get a error about the flash player (?) wants verison 8, I have downloaded and installed a couple of flash player verisons and it won't get the right file to work (I have moved the file it wants, but think I have to tell the Regitry where it is at, would rather install it)

Well done HARD and Erik.
As simple as that. Notifcations off. Sorry for the alarm. :-/

But, please, DON'T DISMISS THE ISSUE QUITE YET!
It probably means next to nothing, but my previous install (on XP 64) was from the same downloadable varsion. Why would the prefs be different this time around?
