  • MAMEWAH not working with Vista

    Hi,

    i tried to set up mamewah on a friends computer last night which is running Windows Vista but I couldn't get it to work. It asked for the system files from the mamewah website to be installed, so I installed them but it still din't work and kept asking for the system files. Is there an issue with Mamewah working with vista?? I installed it on their second PC that had XP and it worked fine??

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sean

          You may need to check 'run as admin' & or Xp compatability mode ?
