Don't forget that in Vista, Addons are stored in a different folder. Docs and Settings for your username, I think. (Been a while since I went near...that OS)

I'll never really understand the hate Vista receives. I've been running it for years and have had far less problems than I ever had with XP or *shudders* 95/98/ME.

Yeah, it's different for me as well- add ons (and the game in general) are in C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns.A good way to find out where exactly the game is located is to right click the shortcut for wow, click properties, the copy the address infront of "target' is, but leaving out the end where it says launcher.exe. From there just navigate through the interface folder into the addons folder.

Because Vista was an expensive Service Pack to XP with new shiney features that could be handled better by third party applications.

You don't have to have WoW and all the addons installed elsewhere. Mine resides in the normal location of C:\program files\world of warcraftWorks perfectly.You just need to know how to get rid of all those Vista "idiot proof" controls. Vista really isn't that bad.

For Mac OS X users: /Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons

Vista depends on where you installed WOW, and what security settings you have.

that's if you have have WoW live in the Program Files directory.If you put it elsewhere, it'll live in the Interface directory as in previous windows versions
