Zune doesn’t work with Vista

Just days after release, Microsoft’s Music Player, Zune has already run into trouble with its compatibility issues with Vista. Early consumers of Zune are complaining that their music player doesn’t work with Vista. Here’s what Zune’s Official Website says:

Windows Vista
Windows Vista is not supported at this time. Check back soon for updates.

Seems like they were in a hurry to get Zune out before the holiday rush, completely forgetting to make it compatible with their own next gen operating system. I agree, Vista just reached RTM by the time Zune came out, but still they could have made it. This what Zune’s installer says when tried to install on Microsoft’s Latest Vista Build:

However, Scott Erickson (Zune’s Senior Product Manager) said that they are working on making Zune compatible with Vista by the time Vista is made available to businesses (must be somewhere around the end of this month)

    MS can be weird.

    Btw, do you get a get_settings error in your logs for the Anti-Spam plugin?

    Ajay: Na.. It doesn’t show that error. Must be a site specific issue
