Cool BearShare & Vista compatibility issues


I've used Bearshare for 7 years or so. I have BearShare on my laptop using the method on the link here:
BearShare has been sabotaged.
(thanks Aaron Walkhouse).

Here's my issue. I have a desktop with Windows Vista (hate it btw) and downloaded the same two files from the link above. The date change app won't work so I changed the date manually on my system and Bearshare opened up, connected and I downloaded a song or two. Then it just arbitrarily stops working. I double checked to make sure the date change "stuck". I went into BearShare Test properties, clicked on compatibility and there is no option for Vista.

What I'd like to do is get BearShare working with my desktop with Vista but wonder if I'm using the appropriate fix with the link above. Any help would be appreciated. I am not terribly computer savvy, but am not an idiot so keep it semi-simple if you can please.

Thanks and I look forward to getting BearShare up and running again.

Have a good one!
