Is Vista Regionally Coded?


Active Member
Hi All,

Sorry if this seems a dumb question but I've been offered an Upgrade to Vista Ultimate.

My current PC is running a UK version of XP.

The Vista version I've been offered is a US/Canada version.

Does anyone know if there will be any problems upgrading my UK XP.

Will the OS run okay? Any regional issues I should know about?

Thanks in advance for any replies.



There should be no problem, when you install your o/s you will be asked what your location is and what time zone you are in.

With the $ at 2 to the £, why doesn't everyone buy VISTA from the USA? Is there any restriction on US traders selling outside of their own market?
