Re: Got new laptop with vista. Can t install wacs700...
I strongly suggest that you discuss WACS related issues in theStreamium Café (www.streamiumcafe.com). This is where you will find ananswer to your problem (look for the WACHandler" threads where you willfind a link to my application ;) You can also try the WADM application from Philips. It is made for the newer WACS units but it works with the WAC700 also.

Yes if you have the Phillips WACS700 and want to install the software that came with the system to upload/download music and you have a windows 7 or Vista you need to open the explorer and go to the CD/DVD folder then look for the .exe change the properties of the .exe files to run in compatibility mode "compatible with Windows XP SP2", then run them from the explorer. I have a Win 7 computer and both software that came with the CD did not wanted to run because they required XP, as soon as I change the properties of the files they ran and installed without a glitch, everything worked as it should and I been able to enjoy my music on the WACS700.
have you tried to contact Phillips? I did the same thing for my Kodak and they sent me one free of charge within a week. Or you may try online for a free download at their official website. At the very least they should have online help.
