Vista support in scientific software

Here is a quick survey of the current state of Vista support, in scientific software, based on information on suppliers web sites.

Where Vista did not appear on the supported platforms page, I have taken that to mean that it is not supported, though it is quite possible that the product works, but that the supplier has not yet formally tested it.

Supporting Vista:
Comsol Multiphysics
Matlab
Mathematica
Mathtype
Mupad
Origin (32 bit only)
Scilab
Stata
Systat


Not supporting Vista:
Genstat
Labview
Maple
MathCAD
Minitab
O Matrix
PVWave
Statistica
Scientific Word
Scientific Workplace

And in a special category of its own, Endnote, which works under Vista, but you have to follow some manual steps listed in their support pages to make it work right.

Somehow VisSim got left off your list. I can tell you that our testing has revealed that while VisSim itself runs fine on Vista, you need to download a winhlp32.exe from the microsoft web site to get the help to work properly.
