History is littered with shattered dreams, vanished illusions, mirages of hope, simply, there are times when the orthodoxy of the masses was just plain wrong -- that the the Sun revolved around the Earth, disease was caused by an imbalance of the humours, when we thought reality TV was a passing fad, global climate change was anthropogenic. Microsoft is painfully aware of, if not a consensus, a widely held impression of Windows Vista as bloated, slow, annoying and not good at playing with other items such as scanners, printers ..... and it's about to spend some $300 million to convince us otherwise.
Yes Folks .
Microsoft's naive VP of Vista marketing, (there must have been the shortest queue in the world for that job) Brad Brooks, told the freeloaders and liggers at a Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference on Tuesday that the next few months will see a major advertising push that promises to "free the people" through what Vista has to offer.
"You thought the sleeping giant was still sleeping, well we woke it up and it's time to take our message forward,"
Yeah. Well take this message Brad. Vista is a crock of shit. 37 processes must run before you can login, the hard disk chatters away all day and night when there is no-one there. It freezes..... and well here is our favourite Vista experience ever.
Can't get Trainz2006 running (odd Error mesages)
i recently upgraded to vista and trainz2006 was a nightmare to run.
but now it works perfectly including download manager
what i first done was uninstall the old version of trainz 2006.
then updated drivers for my videocard (radeon 1300) i then installed a
newer version of trainz 2006 (its called trainz railway simulator it is
actually trainz 2006 and is released by focus) i found a copy on
amazon.co.uk for £8 and it is vista compatible, install it and at the
end of the install it will ask you if you want to intall directx 9
click no, it will then intall netframework 2. after install go onto
microsoft website and download netframework 2 service pack 1 (40mb)
install update, go back to desktop and on the trainz 2006 icon right
and select run as administrator. when trainz menu comes up put in your
details (username etc) then run content manger.
hope this helps anyone having problems with trainz 2006 and vista
PS : Trainz Railroad Simulator 2006 (TRS2006) sets new standards of realism and immersion in operating a virtual railroad. (see website)As Gemma Garrett says, click to enlarge.
