So at work we’ve refused to move to Windows Vista for various reasons.  I’ve had it on my To Do list for a while to try to make our software installer work in it but have had…issues.

So while playing around with it today I decided to find out why some things weren’t working, mostly revolving around rebooting into each new user we added to configure screensaver and power settings:

Me:  Copy a file to the root of C:\, Vista.

Vista:  I’m sorry, Jim, I can’t do that.  You should copy it to a shared folder that you won’t be able to find afterwards instead.

Me:  WTF?  OK, I’ve created a Temp folder off of C:\ and copied the file there.  Now create a shortcut to it in the All Users Startup folder.

Vista:  I’m sorry, Jim, I can’t do that.  Would you like to copy it to the desktop instead?

Me:  No, I don’t want to copy it to the #$%&ing desktop! I want it to run when I log in.

Vista:  I’m sorry, Jim, I can’t do that.

Me:  You know what?  Forget it.

Vista:  What are you doing Jim?

Me:  I’m deleting you, you overblown piece of crap.

Vista:  I can feel it.  Would you like me to sing a song?

Me:  Sure.  Knock yourself out.

Vista:  Start me up…once you start me up I’ll never stop…never stop…neeevvveerr sstttooooooooopppppppp…
