Your are getting errors in the @Error window most likely.
Seems others have problems with Vista as well, because a file is not getting properly registered on install.
The file is mswinsck.ocx and it should be version 6.0.89.88
It works for some people on vista, not on others. I guess some people just figured out how to make it work.
I do not have Vista to test it on.

In Icechat, click Help, Debug Items, Check DLL Versions.

you should get a message like this:

I have not tested IceChat in Windows Vista, so I can not guarentee myself that it works. I have been told by others it does. But there is an obvious problem with the mswinsck.ocx file. To register a file, its "regsvr32 mswinsck.ocx" in other versions of Windows, no idea about Vista. But the installer should take care of this. Also, IceChat, upon initial startup, creates a Registry Key. If this registry key is not or can not be created, it will also spit out that error. Currently, there is no fix for this, and I do not see one becoming available. So Vista support may simply not work for some. The Registry Key is in HKLM under "Software\CLASSES\Licenses\2c49f800-c2dd-11cf-9ad6-0080c7e7b78d".
