Use a Zune with Vista (updated)

The new Microsoft Zune ships without being able to run on Vista (new version of Windows) – weird huh? Well, turns you can use the Zune with Vista, you just need to do a little extractory – Paul from says you can extract the installer from the MSI file, using a MSI tool from Microsoft (might need to edit something else, not sure). He tells me there will be a patched up installer soon, so stay tuned – I’ll update the post when there are more details.

Updated: Paul posted the patch – Link.
