Hi,
I'm using a computer with winXP professional.
I'm writting an application in Visual Studio 2008, C#, NET 3.5, using WinForms

The clients computer runs Vista Home Edition,
and the screens behave and look different.

Is there some kind of emulating program that I can install on my computer,
and it will allow me to get a preview of the application in Vista ?

Thank :)

For doing that I will need a vista installation, right ?

Are there prepared virtual machines that I can use ?

Yes you will need to install Vista in a VM.

There are sometimes prepared VM (like Microsoft provides some for beta applications) but I am not aware of any for Vista.
