There are only two known issues with using the Worship LIVE! software under Windows Vista.

As of version 6.0.17, Worship LIVE! is Vista-compatible.

1) Help file compatibility

To give you the most complete and useful help file (including context-sensitive Help), the Worship LIVE! help file uses the WinHelp32 file format. With Vista, Microsoft deliberately stopped including built-in support for WinHelp files. However, you can easily download and install the required software from the Windows website (sorry, but we are prohibited by Microsoft from including these files in our installer). If you try to launch the Help file from the Worship LIVE! Start folder, Vista will tell you about this lack of support; the message will include a link to the location where you can download the software.

You can read about this problem here:

2) User Access Control

Vista's new security features prevent you from easily using one feature in the Worship LIVE! software. Normally, the Worship LIVE! installer will take care of this for you, but you may need the information below from time to time.

Worship LIVE! includes a built-in ability to associate the Worship LIVE! file types (song files, database files, and so forth) so that double-clicking or right-clicking on those files (from the Windows desktop) will use them with the Worship LIVE! software.

To use this feature, you need to run Worship LIVE! with elevated privileges. Simply do this by right-clicking the program file or shortcut and then clicking Run as Administrator. When you run with elevated privileges, you will need to dismiss a User Access Control prompt.

If you'd like more information about the User Access Control and running as administrator, this is a good resource:
