Everyone’s curious to know whether their system is Vista capable or not. And
out of the different versions available, which one would suit their needs the
best: Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business or Ultimate. This tool from
Microsoft solves most of your curiosity and even tells you what you should do to
make your system Vista capable. The tool runs on all versions of Windows XP
32-bit machines and takes approximately 5 to 10 mins to scan, depending on your
hardware. A home user can run this tool and have a basic idea whether his system
is Vista compliant or not. If it’s not then the hardware upgrade cost would be
added to the total system upgrade cost. Similarly, an enterprise can estimate
the total amount required to upgrade all of its systems. The tool is very easy
to install. Just download from the link provided in the specs box. After the
download, double click on the installation icon and follow the instructions.

Direct Hit!

While the tool scans your
system, you can compare different Vista versions for features
The deficiencies are
automatically categorized into three different sections: System
requirements, devices and programs
It lists all the hardware
devices in your system and warns you about devices that would not work after
you upgrade
It lists names of the programs
that would not be compatible with Vista. For eg, Nero 6 runs on XP but
doesn’t run on Vista
