Microsoft Vista Compatibility Statement

MOST Vista users are now running eBahn® 3 successfully, however eBahn® is not yet officially Vista compatible. Some known problems still exist, and while we do have solutions for most problems, it's possible that eBahn® will not run satisfactorily on any given Vista installation.

Known Vista issues with solutions can be found in the Known technical issues section of this site.

Known Issues

eBahn 3 does not yet officially support MS Vista. MOST Vista users (before Service Pack 1), however, are now running eBahn successfully. While we don't officially support Vista yet, we are interested in as much feedback as possible and will try to help you work through any issues. Please be very explicit about the your operating system version in your support request. Specific setup instructions can be found below, and other known Vista issues with solutions can be found in the Known Technical Issues section of this site.

In addition, some issues are covered in child pages of this page. Please use the search box within this page to look for your issue if it you do not immediately see a heading that covers it.
