Such a data format seemed to be edging toward becoming inaccessible (it's already not accessible on my Linux machines), so I asked about Vista. The answer from Census: "We are currently not running Vista on any Census facilities, and will not do so for some time. So my inclination is that none of our current disc products will be Vista compatible."
