Have made a few post talking about wanting to put LaunchBox on my old computer.  That computer runs Window Vista.  So thought it would make the prefect setup to to have old games running it.  Have read and see lots of great things about LanuchBox.  Am pretty sure it is an awesome program.  While installing.  It has to install the newest .Net Framework.   Which is fine but that doesn’t support Vista.  So am out of lucking with that.  I know as of April (2017) Microsoft is done with Vista.  But still thought it will still be able to run programs.  Think I will look into Retroarch next.

Back in January (2017) made a post talking about LaunchBox.  This program is a frontend program that brings a bunch of game emulators together in once place.  In that post share a video of Metal Jesus Rocks showing it off.  You can see that > here.   Ever since than have been thinking about trying it out.  Now that I have a new computer.  Think I will give it a go on my old one.  Have a few days off together soon.  So hopping to give it a try then.  Will be back with an update on how it went.

LaunchBoxWas watching one of the newest videos from Metal Jesus Rocks.  He and a friend were updating his arcade cabinet.  Which you can see > here or below.  They then showed it off working.  The software it was running has the coolest and slickest interface I have ever seen.  The program is called LaunchBox.   Not hundred percent sure but think it use the same backend as RetroPie,  which is RetroArch.  Think I will give it a try on my computer.  The website does say it can run on Vista.
