The read me talks about some sort of fatal error, and exposing a weakness in the OS. I haven't personally tried it at all yet, but for your CPS you may want to consider a dual boot configuration.

It does work using Wine under Fedora 8 Linux, which is nice.

Vista is a bloated piece of junk anyway, so you're better off.

What are these fatal errors it speaks of I wonder?
