skyguy try to right click on the installation setup and select run as administrator. You dont have to apply any hacks or edits or reboot into safe mode to install as an administrator.
*Disable UAC if you feel comfortable without it. Click Windows Key + R in run menu type msconfig then Click Tools Tab then Highlight "Disable UAC". then Click Launch. This will stop the popup prompt that asks if you want to do anything.
7.7.5 does work prefectly
Nero Lite willwork as well
Ya, it looks like my problem is not Nero per se.....I think.
I got UAC disabled, and managed to "hack-uninstall" Nero. Tried reinstalling.......same problem. Says "Known compatibility issues with Vista", told it to continue, but Installer craps out at the end. Gives me an error, but am at work so can't remember now. Will try to post when I get home tonight.
This is weird because ALL my other programs installed on Vista without a hitch except my Mouseware which says it can't run on Vista. But why Nero? Very weird.
I'll report back tonight, thanks for the ideas so far.
Thanks, I'll try that. Ya, I just need something to burn. But just in case, I'm gonna try out Roxio too and see if that works.
[edit: SUCCESS!!!! Wow, that was fast! Got Lite working, Nero Express. At least now I can burn, don't need the fancy toys. I'll see about the uninstall stuff tomorrow....if it doesn't work, I can live with one little glitch display item in the list.
Instead of posting your problem why didn't you check the Nero website for a free update to the WinVista compatable version?
Or should I assume the version you're using is illegal and you're prevented from installing software updates.
Also before you installed WinVista if you used the WinVista upgrade analyzer you would have known what software and hardware you're presently using required updating to be compatable with WinVista.
Glad it works, I use Nero Vision quite a lot but I would've made the jump to the lite version if I didn't need it, nice piece of non-bloated software this guy made!
At zpyrd I think he uses that CD that comes with the burner, I doubt you can Upgrade with this CD.
Yes, I did use the CD that came with the burner, so it's legit but I am limited as to what sort of upgrades I can do.
However, what started out as a problem and what I THOUGHT was Nero not working with Vista, in fact turned out to be a problem with the Installer, not Nero itself. So, I posted to help to understand Nero and Vista.....I did check their website, but it didn't work which is why I was confused.
Apparently the 2 issues stated above prevented me from using/upgrading my legit software, and I didn't realize it until AFTER Labbbby made it known.
Can't count how many times I've helped someone around these forums with a problem that ended up being very different than what they THOUGHT it was in the first place........guess I'm mortal as well, eh?
And as for WinVista Analyzer.....I wasn't aware of it to be honest. I did a clean install on a new hard drive for Vista, not an upgrade on my current one.........so I never came across such an option. Call me paranoid, but I have data that I simply cannot lose on WinXP and I wasn't willing to possibly compromise my data in order to save some money on an upgrade package instead of a full package. So I just went full package and fresh install on a new drive.
S'all good though, no harm no foul. It's now working, I'm on Vista, my data is safe, got my burning software to work.......now if only the Leafs could win at home, eh?
So Lite will work for me, I just need basic software to backup my data, that's what I'm primarily interested in. Works for me. Thanks again for the help Lab.
You welcome, good stuff you mentionned you're a lefs fan after I helped you because no help for them usually
