Umm...maybe you could tell us exactly what problem your friend is getting, and what it is he's trying to do to get CSBWin to work? I'm pretty sure I've played a CSBWin dungeon or two on my comp (which has Vista) and never had a problem. Maybe with some more info, someone here can help you...

CSBwin works OK on my Vista desktop. It is where
development takes place.

Sound works if you select the DirectX option.
Save/Restore works if you don't put the
game in "Program Files" directory. Vista won't
let you save/restore from that directory.
