Install and run TrackMania Sunrise Extreme on Windows Vista:

1. Insert TrackMania Sunrise Extreme CD to install the game.
2. Please wait while Windows Vista is checking the game installation, this can take several minutes.
3. Once the game installed, please download and run the 1.51 patch http://focus.metaboli.fr/Patchs/Tmsx_15 ... _Setup.exe

Why do you need a patch for TMX? I have Vista and it works fine....

I have TMSX on Vista and I have to spend five hours to get it to run.

Vista won't let you launch the gave via the launcher. I'm downloading this update and presuming it will let the game load from the launcher.

Oh...I see, now. Well, I have that same problem, but I just don't launch from the launcher, then. I just go into the Trackmania file and load the program itself. I only use the launcher to configure the game.

a minute waiting for Explorer to load, another minute to wait for it to load as I go through everything, and something close to an eternity waiting for the game to check the disc.

lol, well I'd already updated Starforce when I installed TMN so it works fine for me despite the long loading time. (still running the anti-Vista patch xD)

Yeah, once you install the Vista patch, try running the game as an admin. I know that you can't configure "Run in Compatibility Mode" in previous versions of TM, but with this patch, that might help things a bit...
