If you install it on Xp, you can't play it on vista because it's installed on XP.
Do you have a dual-boot XP/Vista system?
Why would you want to?
You've got a point, I'm still wondering if it would be possible to run the game via Vista by using the shortcut he created with XP. Shouldn't the shortcut and the game still be directed through his XP partition? That being said, it might be impossible because the system is booting from a different area of your HDD, and that version of Windows is inactive.Not correct,.. but not incorrect either.
Indeed. Some games can even be copied onto a USB Flash drive or harddisk and be ran off there, if you can handle the low loading speeds. (All the GTA games can do this, CD detection could be a problem in "certain" situations though).Some games do require certain registry keys to be present .... alot don't really care though.
I know this lol. I use to have 3x WoW installs at one time and all worked perfectly fine.Indeed, if vista was installed on a Second partition, the primary would still be C: and any other would be E, F, G. etc
As long as you copied the shortcuts from XP to the Vista desktop / start menu then it will work.
