Microsoft Corp. today released a list of known programs that experience some sort of "loss of functionality" with Windows Vista SP1.

The list of 11 products -- divided into categories of "blocked from starting," "do not run" and "loss of functionality (minor or major)" -- is based on reported issues and is "not comprehensive," the company said. Many of the affected programs offer newer versions or upgrades that will make the software compatible (linked below where applicable).

As of press time, the products are:

Blocked from Starting

Do Not Run

Loss of Functionality

As Vista SP1 was released to manufacturing and IT professionals this month, the list may grow -- especially after the update goes live for consumers in March.
