I managed to get it to work, but it's flaky at best. It worked fine on my laptop under XP but after upgrading to Vista things got complicated! Sometimes it's fine, other times it's like a slideshow and I have to kill it from task manager. I got mine to work after trawling the net and getting an options.ini file for it. For some reason C&CG+ZH doesn't seem to manage this correctly under Vista. Best of luck!
I am running it under Vista Home Premium (32bit) SP1 on a desktop pc and it works fine for me, however a lot will depend on your systems specifications. I would think you would need a good laptop to run this under Vista.
