This could well have already been covered but I am using Vista on a second machine and I'm looking for a good (not too expensive programme) to convert raw images.
I can download the images OK and I know that CS3 is OK but I am not in that sort of market.I like the look of Phase one but I don't think that will work.A friend of mine has CS3 and a Mask Pro plug in but even that will not work.I am not too computer literate so do not make the answers over complicated PLEASE

Capture one V4 works with Vista.
As does Lightroom.

Why don't you use the FREE Canon DPP software that came with the camera. Install it, then install the update from Canons website. It works with Vista fine.

Emma

EDIT: You don't need to download the update to make it work with vista, its just the new version of DPP is soooo much better than the version you get on the disk.

Photoshop Elements 5 and the brand new version 6 are both fine on Vista.

I take it this is not a good idea?
I have just been told that I can keep Vista on the hard drive and install XP.
I think that I will go with the idea of using the andy

Mine too - unless you've got a really powerful PC Vista doesn't seem to add anything to your life and stops things working (in my case BT broadband!).

Much as though I like a lot of things in Vista, the drop in gaming frame rates, the poor wireless performance, the irritating "do you really want to do that" nanny approach and the "you don't have permission to do that" annoy the hell out of me. I have the pro version, running as admin, and i installed a new piece of software and was asked three times if i really wanted to run the software and let it nefariously install on my computer. Then there's the one where you try to save something and it says you need admin permission to do that, even though I am the bloody admin and no-one else uses the computer. Come back XP, all is forgiven.

Bumbleb3,
Buying XP is going to cost you an awful lot more than just downloading the new version of Capture One, which is free whilst it is the beta version?
Don't waste money on a new OS when you can get free software!! The Beta version is compatible with Vista and will last you until the full production software is available. Even then, it will only cost you 99 euros (ish) and that is a LOT cheaper than buying XP.
Or, as said earlier, download the up to date DPP software and use that.

Vista works; C1 works; Lightroom works; CS3 works; Elements works; DPP works.

"You'll be really glad if you installed XP"

I repeat: AARRGHHGHHGHHGH
