Windows Vista Recommendations
« on: April 07, 2007, 12:32:57 PM »

Detailed information on Vista support in WME is now in the documentation.


To ensure smooth running on the new Windows Vista operating system, please consider the following recommendations:

1) Game development

Do not store your game project directory in "Program Files". Applications in Vista shouldn't store any private data in the Program Files directory, that's what the user's "Documents" directory is for. WME ProjectMan now defaults to the Documents directory when starting a new project (unlike previous WME releases). But if you currently have you project in Program Files and you're planning upgrading to Vista, please move your entire project directory away from Program Files or some functions might fail (namely compiling the game in ProjectMan).


2) Game deployment

For the same reasons stated above, you should setup your game to store saved game in the user's Documents directory, not directly in the game directory. It can be done easily in the project settings in ProjectMan: locate the "Saved games" section and change the "Personal savegames" to "yes".


If you have any more Vista tips or problems, feel free to post them in this thread.
