Do Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2 support OLE 1? I have been unable to find specific documentation about this.

They should since OLE2 is back-compatible (they both sit on COM).
But read this :

Thanks for the reply. I thought it should also. However in Vista, packager.exe was replaced with packager.dll and is not handled correctly in olecli32.dll. It tries to create a process with packager.dll as if it was packager.exe and therefore fails. It seems there are a lot of issues logged to Microsoft and they are not fixing it.

I was told the same thing I suspected. It turns out to be a Microsoft bug they are not fixing.
