Basic testing on Vista Ultimate reveals the following issues:
1. Problem: Vista has ClearType text smoothing on by default, which can make the text in AV2.5 look pixelated. Also, some letters can appear clipped when flagged by the spell-check.
Solution: Turn off the text smoothing:
- Right click on a blank area of your Vista desktop;
- Click Personalize
- Click Window Color and Appearance;
- Click the link at the bottom of the page that reads "Open classic appearance properties" for more color options;
- Click the Effects button;
- Either uncheck the box that reads "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" or choose Standard from the dropdown list rather than the default ClearType;
- Click OK
- Click Apply;
- Click OK.
2. Problem: On some lower-end video cards, scrolling the script may appear choppy.
Solution: There's no software-side solution available at the moment; an upgrade of the video card may correct this.
3. Problem: Upgrading the operating system to Vista will result in a lost activation.
Solution: As always, it's best to deactivate AV2.5 before doing anything major to the computer or the operating system.
NOTE: All support for AV has been discontinued.
