    Does anyone know how to make this program work in Vista, All I can do is open it, but it will not save any new information. I have thousands of cards in this wonderful little program and do not want to lose the information just because Microsoft has, again, made something so useful, incompatible with Vista! :mad:

    Set the cardfile.exe (or whatever it is called) to run in compatibility mode, right click on the exe and select properties, go to the compatibility Tab and select win98 or XP as the OS to emulate, also tick "run as administrator", click OK

    See if it plays nice now.

    Yes that is a nice simple little program, back from the good ol days of computing.

    Where did you get this "Cardfile" program?
    The last one I saw was on Windows 3.11!
