    thank you for the quick response, lincamp.

    I thought that might be the case; may be "home built".

    Vista is the latest version of Windows. It is very different than the previous versions like 95, 98, ME, XP etc. I don't have it, but my brother does. He found that he could not load some of his usual programs into Windows Vista. They weren't compatible. That's about all I know.

    I was all in a snit this past weekend because the website for my scanner didn't have a Vista version, and I didn't want to buy a new scanner. (I replaced my old laptop just a couple of months ago.) So I Google-d my scanner name and model and "Vista" and found an article posted in late 2007 with a link to a different website where I could get the right software update. Now things are fine.

    So tell your friend to contact the software manufacturer and see if there is a fix.
