I tried it, but was never able to navigate the menus in vista. My solution is to run a dual boot with XP and Vista, and go back to XP for my legacy games (e.g. F-15, EF2000, Longbow 2).

Just installed this on on 2 PCs with the following results:

1. 2008 PC with Intel Q6600 and GeForce 8800 with Windows8-32.

The menus are corrupt, but other than that the game plays and looks great.

2. 2002 PC with AMD XP2700+ and Radeon 9800 Pro with WinXP

Menus are fine, but 3D world rendered poorly (maybe software mode?), also some slowdown.

So, is there any solution to the menu problem on a more modern OS?

Trying to run a compatibility mode for Win95,98 or XP seems to make the menus worse.

Yes works as described - install, patch, remove movies, add glide wrapper and other files described and run from Steam; works perfectly for me.
