WinNonlin 4.2/5.2.1 will not be supported on Vista [Software]

Dear all,

OK, I’m running 5.2.1 on XP Pro SP3 smoothly a couple of months now (and on Vista SP1 with hiccups), but according to the support site (my emphases in red):

Pharsight Products and Windows Vista (general)
Vista Compatibility with Current and Former Product Versions:
According to the applicable Getting Started Guide, System Administrator's Guide, and/or User’s Guide for versions of Pharsight products released prior to 18 September 2008, e.g., PKS 3.1, WinNonlin 4.2, WinNonlin 5.2.1, Windows Vista is not a supported operating system for these product versions. These product versions have not been designed to work with nor fully tested with this new operating system. Pharsight does not intend to perform testing with these existing product versions to determine Vista compatibility, nor to make any corrections to provide for Vista compatibility. However, some of our products may run under Vista with minimal issues.
Vista Compatibility with Future Product Versions:
Pharsight is committed to helping its customers transition smoothly to the new Windows Vista operating system, and will make reasonable commercial efforts to ensure our desktop products are compatible with Vista as soon as practicable. […]

WinNonlin Vista Compatibility:
WinNonlin 5.2.1 was not developed, tested, or certified on the Windows Vista platform. Therefore, we do not officially recommend using WinNonlin with Windows Vista. However, there are several customers that have used WinNonlin with Windows Vista, and it seems to work properly. The officially tested and supported platforms for WinNonlin 5.2.1 are Windows 2000, XP, and 2003. Pharsight does plan to test and support future release versions on Vista, including a planned major release of WinNonlin for 2009 (i.e. version 6.0).


Update (March 2010): WinNonlin 5.3 (Dec 2009) is supported on Vista (32-bit) and Windows 7 platforms (32-bit and 64-bit versions). [Helmut]

Cheers,
Helmut Schütz
