Question about Panasonic PV-GS500 Camcorder

VideoCam suite incompatible with Vista SP1

Can't install without bugging. Software more than ****. How can Panasonic sell videocams without thinking about and solving all these problems ? I'm not even hoping to get a solution, as I also had to renounce to their AVCHD cam because it's almost impossible to edit AVCHD films in good conditions. So far and maybe to help, if you have a"more advanced Adobe Reader 8.", just explore and initiate the VideoCam suite set up and not the automatic set up so as to bypass Adobe Reader ; hoping that your system is compatible (that is, not XP SP3 or VISTA SP1) When are they going to replace that **** , That's the real problem, as they meanwhile seem to be possessive and jealous about their poor and buggy software ! As to me, I had to install the bog/bug on my second hard disk (XP SP2) Good luck to everybody and If you have a solution, disabuse me.
