Topic Subject:New laptop/Vista Home Premium compatibility?

There seems to be a wide range of answers out there with respect to whether or not RTW Gold will run on Vista Home Premium. Some say it doesn't, others say no problem.

I'm considering buying an Asus M50VM-A1 with:

Intel Core Duo2 T8400
NVidia 9600M GS 1G
Vista Home Premium

Can someone please give me a definitive answer as to whether RTW Gold and/or BI will run properly?

They run properly, but it is a pain in the neck to edit files and saves- Vista puts them in the Virtual Store, where they are not easily found.

But the game does run- many of us run RTW and BI on Vista.

Virtual store? Where could you find that? I don't have Vista, so I'm just guessing that it's just another folder.

I'm also currently thinking of purchasing a new computer, and am planning on buying R:TW/M2:TW (Gold Edition, obviously) with it to celebrate being able to play more graphically-intense games than before (I used to have 600mhz of proccessor and 32mb graphics card. I know, it does seem impossible for someone to have something like that. For me, anything will be an upgrade).
