Cons: It doesn't start and support blames Microsoft, whereas Microsoft clearly states this is not an error.
Summary: Just to spare you guys some wasted time here.
My QB Pro 2007 and 2008 do not work on Vista 64. It simply crashes on startup without error. One can find a lot of references to this on this website.

But the support technician would not relent saying this is a Microsoft problem.
Clearly Intuit is not intent on getting QB to run on Vista64 if there is even the slightest changes of blaming someone else,.. rightfully or wrongfully.
