Sadly this release, just as the previous ones, completely freeze my Vista (yuck!) laptop. Really annoying. Everything seems to work but WinUAE. I wonder what kind of weird stunts it's pulling...

Most of the issues with Vista seem to stem from driver related issues - especially on laptops with their mobility graphics drivers.

If you haven't already done so, ty updating your drivers to their latest versions and have another bash. Several users on EAB use Vista and WinUAE without any trouble.

Found this thread. Sounds exactly like my problem. I've got a HP too, but don't remember which graphics chip it has.

Will have a look for updated drivers.

Just a quick note to say it runs fine on my Vista thinkpad T61p laptop so if sould run under vista if you get your drivers right.

From previous experience I would say it most likely you graphics card driver that needs updating to fix the problem.
