First thing to ask is if your version of PM is compatable with vista?

Take a look here, exact same problem, no solution, apparantly tho its not for vista. I was going to suggest running PM in compatability mode, but its not recommended with any type of system application

PM8 is really old now tho, so its probably down to an incompatability
