Yes it will. Actually I do not think that Vista is even a supported OS but it works with Vista to you just have to update DX10.

If you are running XP you just need to make sure you have the latest video card drivers for your card.

What are the rest of the specs on your system? XP is compatible, but the rest of your computer may not be.

Erm... Sorry to ask again, but how am I gonna know that my computer have a vertex shader version 2.0 or what?

When I check the internet about Intel(R) 954, the specs shows that it have both pixel shader and vertex shader 2.0, if I'm not mistaken.

But, when installing the EE2, there's menu where shows the video card properties and my vertex sheder is 0.0(which I asume as I don't have).

I am confuse and need some helps here, I am not yet buying EE3, still downloading the DEMO which takes me about 3 days.

please... watch the language. And its not their fault you bought a game your computer cant handle
And wgn, I think its an error in the installer, just try the ee3 demo and if it runs well, then get the game

To find out what pixel shader version your card has, download Everest Home Edtion, found here:

Install and run, click on the plus sign by "Direct X." Then click "DirectX Video."
