Which Microsoft Products Are/Aren't Supported on Vista
Petitions are all the rage. Maybe we should start a petition to have Microsoft publish a comprehensive list of what products will and won't be supported on Vista.
Just a few that I've come across:
|Visual Studio 2005||Supported|
|Visual Studio 2005 SP 1||Not currently supported.|
|Visual Studio 2003||Not supported|
|Visual Studio .NET (2002)||Not supported|
|Visual Studio 6||Supported|
|Visual Studio 6 SP 6||Maybe supported?|
|XNA||Not supported. Will be when Vista goes RTM.|
|SQL Server 2005 (Everything but Enterprise Edition)||Sort of supported (Installs, but complains about needing SP2, which doesn't exist yet.)|
|SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition||Not supported|
|SQL Server 2000||Not supported|
|Virtual PC 2004||Not supported|
Ok, I'm not going to count on Microsoft providing a comprehensive list, so if you know of other products that are/aren't supported then post them as comments, and I'll update this list.
Updated 2006-09-30: Access 2003 may not be fully supported on Vista.
Updated 2006-10-20: Added more details about SQL Server running on Vista.
Updated 2006-11-07: Added information about Virtual PC 2004.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Which Microsoft Products Are/Aren't Supported on Vista:
Actually, SS 2005 will whine about needing SP2 as well (though there's really been no mention of SP2 from the MS folks at all).
Frankly, Vista is looking more and more like a turd ... a shiny, STEAMING turd, but a turd none the less.
