Hi all. I hope this is not a redundant post. I have not been around these boards for very long so I'm not sure if this has already been covered.

I found in my vista 32bit environment the app would crash upon startup. After ensuring the latest versions of .Net and DirectX were installed, it still wouldn't load. I read how the DWM composition in vista might be the issue and sure enough, after disabling the Desktop Window Session Manager service it worked beautifully.

I also found this site that might explain how to disable this service within the program, and perhaps eliminating any conflicts in windowed themes. Thought someone who knows what they are doing in programing might find this useful in making a vista port.

I would like to say thank you Mr. Lee for all the great work and for putting this out in public domain. Awesome job!

Well i hope this tip helps someone else that was having similar troubles to mine.

Thanks again!
