Just wondering if anybody has tried using ArcGIS 9.2 (Arview) in Windows Vista and wouldn't mind commenting on it. I understand that ESRI does not support Vista yet, and may not for a couple more service packs, but it seems that Vista will allow you to run older versions of software. Any successes or failures?

Douglas - I installed 9.2 on Vista 64 last week. I've only done some basic work, but everything has operated smoothly. My advice is to always install everything in "Run as Administrator" mode. So rather than installilng from the standard splash screen from the DVD, actually navigate to the setup file, right click on the setup file and select the "Run as Administrator". I discovered this helped with directory permissions with another software package and it seems to have had some effect on other softwae installations.

FWIW, I have installed Photoshop, Illustrator, and some other mapping/GIS products without any big issues.
