Thanks James (and also to George) for the clarification.  I can see what is 
meant in Security 
terms, but initially I thought that it was being claimed that Vista and XP are 
effectibvely the 
same in all other respects.

Having said that i have read of UAC being blamed for problems occurring in 
certain software 
instalations, and I wondered whether my problems with a Hal 10 demo were in 
that category.  
It now appears that a bad download of the installer was probably responsible.  
I have 
downloaded a new copy which is some 40 mb larger than the one I had been using, 
hope to fare better when I try it later.
