The KB article on SP1 incompatibility claims that, '[f]or reliability reasons, Microsoft blocks these programs from starting after you install Windows Vista SP1,' though it does link to several vendor support pages with updates or work-arounds. Unfortunately, at least one of the solutions consists merely disabling part of the program, which could leave you with half an anti-virus program."

Vista SP1: Now Less Compatible Than Before

Comments Filter:
  • Doesn't SP1 bring a new kernel for Windows Vista (the one from Windows Server 2008)?

    Then i think it's pretty normal for it to break compatibility with certain applications, namely Antivirus and the like, as they depend more on the kernel than a usual program.

    When I heard about the different kernel, I knew it would bring this kind of problem. When I update my Linux kernel, sometimes I also have compatibility breaking with some drivers. That too, may another issue the SP1 may bring.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
