Windows Vista incompatibility

I tried Andy Boring's procedure to get Delta to run in Vista. I don't 
have Vista Business, but Home Basic. I dragged the Delta folder off a 
thumb drive on to my Vista desktop and followed Andy's instructions. 
However, when I clicked on the Delta Editor, the cursor spun and stopped 
without action. I tried the Run as Administrator command, but still upon 
opening data bases I was prompted to find a program to run the file.

I would be interested if anyone has had any luck with Home Basic. With 
all the versions of Vista out there, this is probably the least likely 
to run Delta, but I would appreciate any input to the contrary. 
Fortunately, my XP machines run the program just fine.

Thanks to Andy for the suggestion.
