First off, I use Vista on a NASA style computer.
The Media Manager and "What's This?" Help program, doesn't operate using Vista.
But let me tell you, Acid Pro 6 is everything you need. Combined with Acid Pro Power! (the official guide), and the manual that's supplied with the Acid program, there's no need for Help files. Granted, the Media Manager is missed, but you can create folders with windows explorer to sort your loop and save catagories. In other words, Media Manager doesn't even have anything to do with the artistic use of Acid Pro and the creative process. In NO WAY does it hinder any of the Acid programs powerful abilities!
As a Home "recordist", I used to need to hook up a drum machine, keyboard, and many other tedius processes involving cables, living room "real estate" and clutter, just to separately record background tracks into my Roland digital recording console. Then into my computer to burn the CD. Now everything is in the computer! And this is one program you can play around with for hours, non-destructive 24 bit editing! Fooling around with different beats and modes, in seconds! EASY!
Later after creating balanced background tracks, vocals and solo instrumentals can be recorded as easily as the ol' multitrack tape recorders! With as many "Takes" as it takes! Even mixing the best sections of each performance to perfection. Again in only seconds! No re-routing this and that. As easy as painting the music on the computer screen.
I've been able to do all of this by just playing around and experimenting. That's how easy it is. Of course I've used multitrack tape recorders long ago, but the program just makes sense without alot of learning curve. Now, I got the Acid Pro 6 Power Book! What the future holds.....
