I'm curious too if anyone is getting Pd to run (or not) in Vista... I
don't have any Vista machines and dread having to set one up :)  There
are rumors of flaky sound drivers in Vista so it's quite possible it's
the realtek at fault; but there could also be latent bugs in Pd.

I believe Pd is only working in 32-bit mode so far on Windows (including
Vista).  It works on XP on a 64-bit machine here, although I've seen a
couple of flaky problems here and there.
