Microsoft has rolled out a Vista software update that, in part, addresses compatibility issues associated with certain "legacy" games. The update is not a response to Alex St. John's accusation
that Vista's tight security could block popular online casual game networks; those remarks have been generally discredited.
The update improves support for the following titles: Age of Empires III
(and The WarChiefs Expansion Pack
), Battlefield 2 Deluxe, Dungeon Siege II, Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna, Fable: The Lost Chapters, Family Feud Online, Flight Simulator X, Lego Star Wars, Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends,
and Zoo Tycoon 2
(and the African Adventure, Endangered Species, Marine Mania,
and Zookeeper Collection Expansion Packs
