FFXI (PC) on Vista?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have heard that FFXI will not install properly on Vista. Can anyone confirm or deny this? If there are troubles is there anything that can be done to get it to work properly? I want to get this for a friend but his laptop uses Vista and he won't go back to XP.

there's a LOT of problems running FFXI in Vista.

That SAID, you're lucky I decided to look a little further and found a link
at playonline.com (I think this is the support site for the game?) which has
a nice new version of the Play Online patch system for Vista which will
probably get you up and running...

Here's the link you'll want to get too eventually:

Basically you download the Vista Compatible version of Play Online, install
it.
Then you install FFXI using the new version of Play Online.

Good luck.
