Well I have been using vista for a while without any problems. So yup Vista works with NWN. Not sure about windows 7 though.

You have to run it as administrator. Which is easy, just right-click, run as administrator.
Vista machines are likely to be dual core too, so you may have to set your cpu affinity.

I use NWN on Vista and everyone once in awhile Vista will close down my game, and Im not sure why. *shrugs* Other than that it works beautifully.

Genereally, as long as you're in administrator mode, which was already mentioned, and in XP emulation mode, it seems to work.

Get windows 7. Works like a charm. Though vista worked as well. Never had any nwn problems caused by the OS.

Same here.  No problems with NWN and Vista or Windows 7.

Vista and I assume 7 handle program crashes a bit differently than XP.  Instead of giving you the big scary GPF message, it just simply closes the window and kills the program thread with no fuss.  A better way to handle it, IMO, but it does make it a bit mysterious as to what's going on.

And now ladies and gentlemen comes the time where I relieve you of the burden of your failed and useless lives.  But if you gotta go, go with a smile!
