Nmap on Windows Vista

For some reason, Nmap won't run on Windows Vista. This has outraged a lot of Hackers who bought Vista for tons of money and find out that it can't run everyone's favorite port scanner. Luckily, though, I figured out a way to make it work.
Download Nmap,if you don't already have it. You can get it here:
http://download.insecure.org/nmap/dist/ ... -setup.exe

If you don't run a Windows OS, you can download the Linux version here:
http://nmap.org/install/inst-linux.html

If you have Mac OS X, download it here:
http://nmap.org/install/inst-macosx.html


OK, now you have Nmap. If you are on Windows Vista, go to the Hard Drive(It's located in the "Computer" Icon, under the label OS). Once you are in the hard drive, go to the folder that's named "Program Files". Find Nmap's folder. Right click on Nmap's Icon and choose the tab that says "Compatibility". select Windows XP from the Dropdown Menu, and select Apply.
Then Click the box that says "Run this program as an administrator".
Now, go to the desktop and try and use Nmap. It's working!
If it's not, just PM me. You'll get a full refund ;)
Enjoy!

That's nice to know. I'm currently running XP, but I'm thinking about buying a new computer soon and I'm sure I'll be getting Vista.

It still doesn't work for me, It can't open eth4 :(
Vista isn't my hacking PC though and I rarely use it anyway, my Xandros laptop is my main one and nmap runs perfectly on that.

the last time i was forced to use a windows machine, it was vista, however i downloaded the metasploit framework with which is bundled ZENMAP... not sure if you can get zenmap standalone. But its a cute little gui for nmap that worked just fine.

Zenmap looks awesome, I'm going to get it for my Xandros laptop later.
I'd like to say that I prefer the retro look and feel of the command line but to be perfectly honest, it's a pain in the ass :D
