Re: Is any release prior to the latest stable release, and the next RC release, officially supported? #NVDARelease

About the program in question: can someone using Windows Vista or 7 try duplicating the issue at hand? Also, as Brian mentioned, it would be helpful if the issue reporter tell us if any accessibility options are checked and what not (if you told the player to use UIA and if you are using Windows XP, then please don’t do that, as UIA in XP is unreliable).
As for older Windows releases: Windows 9x isn’t supported because Visual Studio compiler will not generate code for it.

Well, this thread has taken an interesting turn that I hadn't ever anticipated (and, to quote Seinfeld, "not that there's anything wrong with that.")
So I'll use this to get back on my soapbox about when anyone encounters an issue with any software or combination of software:
I cannot count the number of times when I've spent hours on a given problem only to find out that it was a weird interaction between two programs that are installed, that a system has not been updated and old DLL files are being called that have errors that have long ago been fixed, etc.
I'm not saying that anyone is directly "at fault" for anything, but these are factors that you must consider and there will be occasions when "it's just you" as well as many more when it's "not just you." Having a detective's mindset is essential in instances such as this.
Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete. If you’re alive, it isn’t.
