Without knowing what is on your machine now, I would have to say, "I have no idea."

In general programs are very easy to move between operating systems, in fact most 32b programs work flawlessly in a 64b environment (emulated 32b). It is the driver interaction that always causes the headaches. So will your programs work, most likely yes. Will all of your drivers work, that will probably take a little time to get perfect. The downside is that some programs use custom drivers to make thier software work. When these drivers are not updated (or flexible enough) for use in newer operating systems, than problems can arise.

Is there some sort of list of programs that are compatible? Of not is there a way I could list to you my programs?

I doubt there is a comprehensive list of all vista-compatible programs. The only way to know for sure would be to contact the vendors that created the programs that you have specific questions. They should be able to tell you if thier program has been tested on Vista.

Ok so how is this done? I have looked in Vista RC2 and have found no option to upgrade to RTM. And windows update says I'm up to date.
