MMF2 works fine on Vista, except for the automatic update feature in the current version, but there are rules to follow to avoid possible issues with the installers. More info :


MMF2 Installer

You should not have any problem with the installer of MMF2, if you let Vista run it as administrator and don't uncheck the "Launch MMF2" option in the end screen.

If you have any issue :

- If for any reason Vista doesn't run automatically runs the installer as administrator, the installer will report it cannot install files to the Program Files directory. In this case, exit it, right click setup.exe on the MMF2 CD and select Run as Administrator.

- If, for any reason, the program compatibility assistant says it might not have correctly installer, just ignore this message.

- If, for any reason, you have unselected the "Launch MMF2" option in the end screen of the installer, then the MFA extension won't be correctly associated with MMF2 and some extension installers might not detect the install directory of MMF2. To fix this issue, just right click the MMF2 shortcut on the desktop or in the Start menu, select "Run as administrator", wait for MMF2 to appear and then exit it.


Automatic update

The Automatic update feature doesn't work with the current build of MMF2 (244) when MMF2 is run without elevated rights.

To make it to work, run MMF2 as administrator, answer Yes if MMF2 asks you if you want to install the patch, or click the Check for Update option in the Help menu, install the patch and then exit MMF2 and relaunch it.

This issue should be fixed in the build 245.


Update install program

EDIT: patch programs fully compatible with Vista have been re-uploaded today. If you want to install on Vista a patch that you have downloaded previously, right click it and select "Run as administrator".


Extension Pack Installers

We are going to release an update for the 3 extensions packs, to force the installers to run with elevated rights. Until then, if no shield is displayed in their icon, just right-click them and select "Run as administrator".


Installers of other extensions

Extension developers who use Install Creator should rebuild their installer with the latest build of Install Creator (#29) (this build contains an option to force Vista to run the installer with elevated rights - it's ON by default, you do not need to modify it, just loads your installer settings and rebuild it).

I have a question about Vista and the applications we create using MMF2. I still have XP, but some people wanting my applications are using Vista, and they are reporting some weird bugs. How do we go about reporting these issues, since it could be Vista, or something else...?

thanks.

post them here, it is most probably vista and all the useless security features, I tried getting the longhorn server beta from ms`s site but it kept failing all the time, so I had to get it from a torrent and what a dissapointment, I have XP SP2 running in a virtual PC window and it runs great, blue screen comes up a bit but it runs fast... longhorn SERVER takes 8GB (compared to 800MB server 03) and it bearly works, extremely slow. It is a beta but personally I think MS has now made the biggest mistake ever... windows 1.0 was $99! why is vista over 500
and you have to laugh at them spending billions on china and only selling 254 legimate copies, LOL!

It is slow and large because it's beta. I had the vista public beta for a while, and it was the same. It's basically built in debug mode so that they can get more information when a crash happens (and with beta stuff it IS "when", that's the whole point). The release version is much better.

I use Vista release version now, with no problem. I didn't experience these problems when using MMF2 or installing any extensions. (I may have done this after this post.)

maybe using that would greatly increase performance of MMF2 and MMF2 applications on multicore CPUs, its free

I am running the Developer version with the 246beta version.

This has been happening so I just got around to reporting the message Vista gives me. I'm not sure I would call it an error even.

Anyway, on starting up MMF2 I get a message that:
"The running program is not compatibile with certain Windows visal elements. Display mode is set to Window Vista Basic. "

After ending MMF2 the display is changed back to Areo.

This does not happen with any other programs on my system only MMF2.

Yes, this problem was reported some time ago. I think it might be due to QuickTime (I can't test it right now). Can you rename kcqtw3.mfx to kcqtw3.xxx in the Extensions folder and restart MMF2 to see if this fixes the problem?
