Thank you.

Need to say that you have to be logged as administrator to see HDD temps in Windows NT or later.
In VISTA, you may need to disable UAC (User Account Control) to get the same behavious as in XP.
If UAC is active, you need to MANUALLY SET "run as administrator" option for hmonitor.exe (via Property dialog) and then answer TRUST on UAC request at start time.

As for Graphic adapters, to avoid hardware access conflicts, Hmonitor reads the temperature from nVidia drivers, but your system has installed Microsoft driver.
However, even current beta-stage nVidia ForceWare drivers for Vista do not support temperature monitoring.
I hope that Vista drivers release will support it again.

Solved.
Support for Nvidia & Ati Graphics adapters monitoring for MS Vista is added in Hmonitor 4.4.0.1 release.

HDD monitoring for any RAID mode (including SATA) is not supported due to hardware restrictions;
Additionally, some vendors (AMD & Nvidia) use pseudo-SCSI device drivers for SATA AHCI mode, and SATA S.M.A.R.T. commands are NOT supported BY THESE DRIVERS, so hmonitor doesn't display HDD temps too.
