Well, for me, running it in compatibility mode has worked SO FAR.

If you're an advanced computer user, I could give you instruction on how to run XP as a virtual machine, and launch RPG maker from there, if you have an extra copy of XP lying around. It seems to me that just for RPG maker, it would be kind of time-intensive and space consuming, though.

I'VE GOT IT WORKING!!!!
I'm using vista home premium 32-bit,
if you really want too get rpg maker xp working what you need to do is:
1.buy or download demo from www.download.com,
2.Setup to desktop not original location-c:Programme files/enterbrain,
3.If you bought it then don't forget too put your serial in or it will expire after 30 days.
any questions email me at scheps@hotmail.co.uk.
P.S. PK EDITION DOES NOT WORK!!!!!

This is usual for PK, owever if you're running the legal edition then try switching to PK and vice-versa.

does it say RGSS has stopped working when you go to test play? if it does you need to change the config file as stated above...

I managed to download postility knights, but even if I run it as administraitor, it won't work.
How do you run a program in compatible mode?
And also, I can't find the ini file anywhere...... So I can't edit that.

the file is in documents/rpgxp/"projectname" and it is called: "Game" and the file type is configuration settings, change that file...

I finally did get RPGMXP to work on my new computer with Vista.  But I'm still having one problem: when I playtest, the character/map movement is very jolty, not very smooth like on my XP computer.  Is this because of DirectX?  Surely the better processor and RAM should make it appear LESS jolty?  Is there a way to make it less jolty?  I am using 1280x800 resolution with a Nvidia card, if that matters.

An old "friend" of the site (hint: Cold) figured out the problem: I needed to go to the gameplay properties (click the game window icon and "Properties") and check "Smooth Mode" and "Reduce Screen Flickering."  No more jitters!  Hope this helps anyone else who had this dilemna too!   :)

If only life had HDR lighting... (sigh)
PK works fine on Vista H. Premium x64, simply change the library from 100j to 102E.

102E... almost magic, eh?
Awesome stuff.
And the games work fine if you change that too.

Didn't bother reading any of this stuff but here is my summary of what ive been experencing!

1. nTitles is missing, you are not logged in as a user, only as a guest
2. RGSS file not found, reinstall it, thats what i did.
3. rgss101 (etc) (dont remember the numbers), if you move your program to a completely different computer, this will happen. (way to fix is: reinstall the rpg game from the internet on that other computer and keep your data from your map/game/adventure)
4. Trial has expired, either buy it, or get torrents. I suggest getting torrents, but if your a freak about viruses, buy it. It's $60.00

nTitles could also mean you transfered the program from somewhere else, but few ppl do that

I'm sorry im bumping this old thread but i recently got rpgmaker xp on my vista cpu. It starts and then immediately quits. The problem i have is that I cant find the .ini file. there is a rgss player file called "game" which i expect is the file you are speaking of but I cant open it right.
 
I even tried opening this file in notebook but cant find the proper line.  Just a bunch of gibberish with a few things that are almost recognizable as a language. If needed I will upload a screenshot.

p.s. sry again for bumping this old ass post.

the .ini file is the RPG Maker configuration settings file. It should have an icon similar to a notepad or the like
