Their site states they have a version for all Windows except 98/ME.

Whether that was posted before Vista was released and hasn't been updated is anyone's guess.

Have you tried Compatibility Mode on the Alcohol installer and/or program executable?


EDIT: I just checked further, and they it supports Vista (Build 6000) 32 and 64 bit. (Version 1.9.6.4629)

Ill have a look on there site,

Vista hates alcohol 120% if you have it installed on XP and you try to upgrade to Vista it tell you before you can continue to upgrage you have to uninstall 120%, even if you clean install Vista then go to install 120% it comes up with a warning and blocks then install!!

so its not a compatablilty issue its something Microsoft had put n vista

If i find anything ill let you know!

Your experience is why I never use new software, I always wait until it's matured.

XP was lousy when it was first released, and it took months until most of the bugs were resolved.

Same thing applies to Vista unfortunately.


Try Compatibility Mode. You won't lose anything and you never know.

Yeah i new it would be touch and go, I didn't install XP till it had been out 2 years and SP 2 was out but was just intereseted to see the new Aero features in action (im glad i did as this is the only proplem i have had and i have alot of accessories and software and i did wait 6 months)!!

Even in compat mode its blocking the install, it knows what program it is and the only conclusion i can think of is Microsoft dont wont there users to use Alcohol 120% for reasons of backing up illegally.

Saying this i have just looked on there web site and there advertising the new verisons with screen shoots taken from Windows Vista with Aero enabled so maybe thats the answer (the latest verison) which i thought i had my bad!!
