Hi Frankgar,

You can go to the X-10 website and then software download page.  At the top of this page is a link for replacement software.  You will need your e-mail address used to purchase as well as your original order number to gain access to updated software.

If you do not have your order number, you will have to either call or e-mail X-10 directly.  They should be about to pull up your history of purchases and e-mail you the link.

From the "hindsight is 20/20" department...

It's a good idea to save the email that X10 sends you with the link. Each time I've moved my setup to a new computer (twice now) I've been able to just lookup the email and use the link. This of course is easier to do if you use a web based email that will let you store an unlimited amount of email such as Yahoo.

As a everyday user of many PC in my house, I say if you have the computer Power (Duo prosessor, 2gb memory++)  then Vista is ALOT better than XP !
Go for it !!
