It's been reported that my Delphi 5 applications run fine in Vista, so yes they will.

>> Does my delphi win32 program can run in MS Vista ?

It depends on the Vista whether it is a 64 bit version or 32 bit version.
If the Vista you are running in 32 bit version, the present delphi applicaiton will run(may be slight modification needed)
But on 64 bit version, the answer is no because all the present delphi applicaitons are developed in 32 bit version

I think that's not right, win 64 OSs run win32 app, so delphi app will run fine, but as win32

same as win95, it run win 16 app fine

thanks experts comment. There are some OPENGL function in my delphi win32 application. I am worry it can't run in Vista.   Do I need to move win32 platform to .NET platform?  I am confused.
