Has Vista been already included in support OS?

I see, thankyou.
Would you please update a webpage http://www.gnupg.org/download/supported_systems.en.html, too?

the following message appeared when running gpg.exe at the only first time on Vista.

| gpg: DBG: rndw32: get performance data problem

In detail, it will be output before creating the random_seed file.
and this message disappears when turn-off UAC from Vista's control panel.

>From source code in cipher/rndw32.c:

static void
slow_gatherer_windowsNT(void (*add)(const void*, size_t, int), int requester )


            status = RegQueryValueEx (HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA, "Global", NULL,
                                      NULL, (LPBYTE) pPerfData, &dwSize);
            if (status == ERROR_SUCCESS) {

            else {
                g10_log_debug ( "rndw32: get performance data problem\n");

Under the environment with UAC on Vista, it will be refused to access 
HKEY_PERFORMACE_DATA even if user has administrator privilege. 
I think this is not serious problem, because a random_seed is made from
another part.

Is this right?
