Found this on Digi's website:

"Windows Vista SP1 — Not Qualified
Please note that Pro Tools LE and M-Powered are not supported on any available versions of Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista. Digidesign will announce Vista Service Pack 1 qualification with Pro Tools as soon as all testing is complete.

Microsoft currently plans to make Windows Vista SP1 available to Windows Update and to the download center on microsoft.com in mid-March 2008. In mid-April, Microsoft will begin delivering Windows Vista SP1 to Windows Vista customers who have chosen to have updates downloaded automatically.

Please do not install Windows Vista SP1 on any Pro Tools system until it has been officially qualified by Digidesign."

Good to know.

Default Re: Anyone using PT 7x with Vista Service Pack 1?

I was running PT 7.4 on Windows XP instead of Vista after reading a lot of posts here that PT on Vista was so very slow, with constant crashes, a resource hog, etc.

And actually, I had a quite few problems in XP with PT ...playback stuttering, RTAS crashes, PT freezing before recording, etc. So I thought, if this is with XP, I don't even want to try with Vista.

Well, my system drive died and I had to reinstall the OS, so I decided to give Vista a try.

....What a pleasant surprise; everything is running nice and smooth in PT now. Instant playback, no freezes or crashes, faster loading, more VIs at once, etc. (other than some nasty Kontakt3 bugs that take the whole system to its knees sometimes). I just wish I had done it earlier.
And yes, I installed SP1 as soon as it was released and eveything is about the same with no noticeable changes in PT, but Vista is faster and snappier indeed, especially on file copying/reading operations.

By the way, I'm using the /3GB switch with the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE modified PT executable. It really lets you use more memory for PT, around 2.7gb instead of 1.5gb before)

Now, if we could only get Vista 64 support.
