# Platform Notes - Windows

This page contains information about the Windows platforms Qt is currently known to run on, with links to platform-specific notes. More information about the combinations of platforms and compilers supported by Qt can be found on the Supported Platforms page.

## Windows Vista

At the time Qt 4.7.0 was released, there were no known Vista-specific issues.

## Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows NT

### Installation location

Installing Qt into a directory with spaces, e.g. C:\Program Files, may cause linker errors like the following:

` c:\program.obj not found`

Install Qt into a subdirectory without spaces to avoid this problem.

### Possible GL conflict

There is a known issue with running Microsoft NetMeeting, Lotus SameTime and other applications that require screen grabbing while direct rendering is enabled. Other GL-applications may not work as expected, unless direct rendering is disabled.
