NightCal and Vista - does it work? was created by NightCal

Has anyone tried Nightcal (www.nightcal.co.uk) on Vista yet? As a co-author of this software it would be really handy to know if anyone has had any problems with it.

Hi,

I just installed it, first off it's seems to work no problem with Vista. BUT if you exit the application, click on the link on the desktop, it cant find Nightcal.exe. The link to the .exe i.e. "C:\Program Files\NightCal\NightCal.exe" is there but the NightCal.exe seems to be installed into the documents directory associated with the user profile!

I changed the link to point to the c:\etc..\documents\Nightcal.exe directory and it then picks up the Icon, which it doesnt do initially, and then launches correctly.

Cheers,
Gary

Thanks Gary
Did you install it in normal 'Vista' mode or in the 'XP SP2' mode?

Hi,

I didnt get any option like that, I have Vista Ultimate if that's any use, so "presume" it's vista mode.

Cheers,
Gary.
