Running WLM 8 on Vista 5270 Without Problems

Kudos deffinatly go out to Hasin for figureing this thing out. With this little tweak you can get WLM 8 running fine on Vista 5270 without causing conflicts between Explorer and My Shared Folders, which causes it to crash suddenly.

Simply download the A-Patch from here.

Be sure to enable Polygamy and disable the ads. ;)

Once you're done installing it on XP, boot into Vista and go to C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger and double click on the Windows Live Messenger file, it'll start up nicely.

Only side effects is that it appears that ram usage is a little high in Vista, but since it doesnt write anything to explorer on its way to install, it'll work just fine.
