    Navision 4 SP3 Update 6 (Build 25143) will work on Vista and Windows server 2008.

    Microsoft confused the issue by replacing their download of V4 SP3 by the Update 6 version when it came out so you may have the right version; or not.

    Beware: Update 6 turns on index hinting by default and is the first version with the 'wipe the database dataport update'

    Ahhh, probably not a good idea for someone who's "not technical guy". IF the SP3 version you're using is the non-Vista variation switching to the Vista variation is what's called a technical upgrade. You will probably have to upgrade the version of Navision on every client machine plus any application servers and CFRONT applications.

    You haven't said why you want to install Navision on the server; you don't need to install it if you're not running the client on that machine (eg if it's a terminal server) as the only thing that MUST be on the server is MS-SQL. Everything else can be done from a client on any machine.

    If you're also having problems with Vista and Se7en clients and you're still not involving someone "technical" you might try Windows 7's "XP mode".
