No. Visions is built to run on a Windows system, Windows XP is preferred. Windows 7 is also good.
We do not have an ETA for when Visions might run on a Mac.
It also does not run in a web browser or on a phone. Sorry.
Yes, but you will have to manually install DirectX 9 from the Microsoft website. If you run a system check it will think that you have the newest version of DirectX already because Vista runs on DX10 and Win7 runs on DX11 but in Microsoft’s infinite wisdom they decided NOT to make DX10 and DX11 retroactively accomodating of DX9 libraries. And Visions requires DX9 from June 2009 or newer.
Here are the instructions you need to follow to manually install DirectX 9 on your Vista or Win7 computer*:
1. Click on the following address:
2. Near the middle of the page on the left of where it says “Validation Required”, click “Continue”
3. Click Install Plug-in follow the on-screen directions, and then click Continue near the bottom of the page.
4. This leads you to a page to download dxwebsetup.exe. Save the file to your desktop.
5. Run dxwebsetup.exe (about 25mb download)
6. Congratulations! You can now run Visions on Windows Vista.
