Dale, We did a little more testing on the student popping out of college problem (that we were previously blaming on Vista). <reminder: MP, one Vista, one XP> We are playing as a team which is what we have always done. This is what we did: On the Vista we had 2 students in college. One had 2 turns to grad, other had 4. Saved the game. Exited and reloaded saved game. On re-load, was asked to choose profession for graduating student. I was able to look at the settlement that had this college (from other computer) and could see that the students were still actually there with the correct prof and number of turns to grad. Vista had to pay the fee for each student again, basically to keep them in school. Hopefully this is not a Vista bug and you can wave your magic wand! I should also mention that this is NOT a Beta2 bug. We have experienced this probably since the beginning, not sure, but for quite a long time.
