    Remember, there are two patches with the same number from EA (4.14 and 4.14b, right?) do remember to download the one with the 'b' as well as the one without the 'b'. And to make life easy, those are the two most recent BF42 patches.

    For FH, remember to have downloaded all 3 parts of FH 0.7 in order.

    Lastly, you might want to set Vista to admin mode and play FH in Win 98 or XP mode. (however one does that, as I do not have Vista)

    It might be a good idea to wait for a Vista owner to reply.

    I've got mine working in Vista. You need to run it in compatibility mode with 98/ME, with the visual themes and desktop composition disabled. At least that was how I got it working. You also have to run it as an admin of course. Right click on your FH shortcut icon and go to properties. You should be able to manage the above stuff from there.

    Oh no, I'm not talking about the Punkbuster issue. I'm still screwed with it. But prior to that I did have FH working with Vista, which is what this guy was asking about I thought.
