If your OS is Win7 64 bit, then incompatibility must be occur because Windows XP use 32bit Operating System and driver software usually only special for each OS (x32 or x64). About upgrading the software, how will you upgrade while you can't even install the basic software in your PC ? The choice you have is find another driver that compatible with your OS, you can search via Google, and I hope you are lucky enough to get it available or even free to download. If you still want to upgrade, then the Windows7 is the one to be upgraded so you can use XP Mode system. You must have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate to run Windows XP Mode. You can visit microsoft.com for details.
If your Windows7 work in x64 operating system, of course it would be incompatibility if you use driver for XP in it, since Windows XP use x32 system, that's where the problem come from (I've faced the same problem sooo many times for several software) . You need to check your OS first (push Windows and Pause Break button together to see it) and make sure which one is your OS, 32 or 64 bit OS? If you have 64 bit OS, for any software that you want to download from internet, you must choose that support 64 bit OS. Some of x32 software still installable in Win7 64 bit, but yes, other software need us to spend some bucks to download them. If you upgrade your Windows7 you may use XP Mode that allow you to install XP driver or software in Win7 based PC, but once again, ITS NOT FREE !!
First do a clean uninstall with the Windows Installer Clean up utility, after you remove the programs from your add/remove menu. Then try inserting the cd, and going to explore it manually, look for a setup file that says vista on it, try installing that way.
Hope this might jump start the fix, I don't have vista =S
Check on the CD software you received with your camera whether it support the Win Xp OS.
In case it doesn't support your OS, go to the Canon web site and download to your PC the relevant drivers for your camera and OS.
Good luck !
It's not something I own, but I have had some luck disabling DEP in XP. Look up XP DISABLE DEP on google.com
There can be many other reasons such as spyware damage, firewalls and more that are "in the way." Another poster found Roxio interfered with Kodak software installs. Finding the toxic combo is always fun.
