openCanvas3.03E Plus Installer Information: The operating system is not adequate for running openCanvas3.03E Plus.
Technically, I think that the computer has all the necessary specs; it's just that somehow, one of the tests that it runs to see if the computer is compatible comes up negative for Vista. (This is similar to a problem that I had with Painter Classic, but there was a patch for that one.)
I'm looking for a patch, a solution -- anything that works. Even if I have to take apart the .msi installer file PIECE BY PIECE to do it.
Thanks in advance for any help!
*(and no, this is not an option to change, so please, nobody tell me that the solution to this is to downgrade to XP. My old laptop just died horribly; it was an XP. This new laptop has Vista, and non-compatible hardware for downgrading to XP, and it's all that I can afford right now.)
