You are lucky being able to launch the game (maybe you did some trick?), because you should get an alert popup window at game start, and the game should be quitted immediately.
Is the CTD recurrent, always at the same date?
If yes, please contact me via private message, so that I can give you my email address. You will have to send me the savegame done just before the recurrent crash.
If not, provided this crash is not caused by Vista compatibility, I can give you the usual suggestions:
- if possible don't keep resident programs (consuming much RAM) working in background while the game runs
- disable antivirus and firewall, if any (remember that some nasty antivirus, like norton, are totally not compatible with GI, and have to be uninstalled)
- play at LOW game speed
- disable the autosave
- if you wish, you can even disable the sound & musics (in the setup tool), so saving a lot of RAM...
In fact, Vista itself has a very big RAM requirement, so this game, provided it should not run (very strange!), could suffer from a major RAM need for sure running with Vista, being highly unstable if you don't have a good bank of memory.
Also, be sure you are playing with the Patch 1.07b installed... In fact, if you read the forum, you will find that this patch fixes a major stability issue that was caused by the serial-key-protection-tool.
At the start of the scenario, a historical event is triggered, of religious nature I remember... You surely chose the "wrong" option, that one that causes so many turmoils in the empire! (Probably, you did not read carefully the consequences of your choice )

I don't know if the CTD is constant, but it often happens with this game leure:

Windows Vista compatibility is not guaranteed, even if you successfully patched the OS in some way I do not know, and mainly considering you have "only" 1GB RAM. I write "only" because, to my knowledge, Vista RAM requirements are about 2GB to work properly...
Of course, this does not mean that I do not want to help you
Indeed, patch 1.07a and 1.07b, even thought are meant to work with the serial-key-copy-protected version that can be bought via digital download in the AgeOD site, do contain some minor RAM usage improvements that are absent in the 1.07 version you have on your PC.
Well, considering that you are suffering from the Vista low-RAM problems, these minor improvements that should be not sensible under Windows XP, could be instead sensible under Vista. At least I hope so...
Let me think about a solution, ok? Maybe I could send you an updated version, hoping it will work more stable under your patched Vista.
By the way, if you remember how you successfully patched Vista in order to have Great Invasions working, it could be nice if you "share" your knowledge with other players

Monophysists was a little against "no tolerance".

also i noticed i have many enemies... Bulgars, Avars and Arabs the big ones. I got allied with the Arabs, but after they conquered Persia they attacked me... is this hardcoded? I think so.
