We've set up a special page for distributing a new version of GenSmarts that's compatible with Vista:
At this point, we're only recommending this for Vista users, though it should work just fine on XP, 2000, etc.

This cleans up almost all the remaining known bugs, including issues with the help file, issues with the directory used for the custom suggestions repository, and an issue with proper detection of VFPOLEDB by the welcome wizard.
The only known remaining issue is a case where, during a "conversion" installation where you're installing on top of an existing release, the link cache file slCache.dat is given security by Vista such that it can't later be updated by GenSmarts running in "user" mode. This causes and error when GenSmarts later tries to update the file. If you get this error, simply delete the file slCache.dat (get the folder name it's in from the error) and that will resolve the problem.
