I have Vista, and I've never had problems with WaDF. Make sure that DEP isn't stopping it running.
good bye

This may be a stupid question but what is DEP?

What I do is I download WADF from the Nifflas site. Then I extract it to my desktop. I click on WADF exe. and this error message pops up "Cannot load ChangeAnim.COX this this object might need an external program or library not yet installed"

can anyone help?

thanks

thanks for the suggestion, but the DEP thing didn't help I think it has to do with that error message anyone have any ideas?

I have Vista, too, and it's working fine for me. Try re-downloading it.

Nifflas can't do more than anyone in this case, because he's bound to the software he's using. But Nifflas cannot fix a problem that only exist on one client pc anyway.

I've tried contacting NIfflas several times but no response. Is there some way I don't know about other than the "Contact" section on the home page? Also I've downloaded it multiple times. I get this problem each time. Where are you all downloading it to? I'm just downloading the zip file to my desktop and then extracting the files straight to the desktop. Or is there another site to download from other than the Nifflas sight?

Nifflas is busy. The problem is clearly with Windows Vista (or possibly your computer, since others with Vista have had no trouble running WaDF), rather than with WaDF itself.

Do you have trouble running other MMF games? (EG, Knytt, Knytt Stories.)
good bye

Nope no problems, Knytt, and Knytt stories run perfectly.

I think it's a problem with DEP, as unlikely as it might sound. (Vista does weird, weird things sometimes.)

Well I turn off DEP like the suggestion above says, or well I click the link and then the first google page tells you how to do it, and i follow the instructions and it says action completed. Then I redownload and attempt to run WaDF and it still doesn't work

So I tried playing Pteradon, The Turtle Philosopher, and Geoffrey the Fly, and none of them work. But each time the error message I get tells me that a .COX file needs to be installed. Any guesses?
