Hi Lindsay,
That's correct. A lot of us found that out the hard way. As I understand it Windows Vista has drastic changes in vidio support, and these changes in vidio support breaks compatibility with some older games such as FS 2002. I'm not surprised because as a software developer myself I have seen lots of development changes between XP and Vista. Many older technologies are being removed and many other newer technologies are slowly being incorperated. For example, Microsoft's decision to begin removing DirectInput, DirectSound, DirectPlay, etc and replace them with XAudio, XInput, etc. So FS 2002 won't be the first nor the last program you might have that fails to work properly on Vista and the up coming Windows 7. Personally I think Microsoft is making too many changes too fast resulting in third party software developers to play catch up and update all of their software at once to target the newer Windows platforms.
