Downloading Alliance on a Vista computer and installing is no problem. However since the program writes to files in C:\Program files\Alliance which is a problem in Vista. Now users can add write permissions to the program dir or run as Administrator. But Alliance should use the %AppData% folder for storing the data/ files. The %AppData% folder is supported under Windows XP.
