You can try installing it in "Compatability Mode" for XP SP2 and Run As Administrator.
Windows Vista or Windows 7, has problems running some older versions of applications, just because so much has changed under the hood from Windows XP days.
To configure the compatibility mode for an application, just locate the installation directory and right click on the .exe, selecting Properties from the menu.
Select the Compatibility tab: Set it for "XP SP2"
You can actually hoose to run the program in Windows XP compatibility mode, or even all the way back to Windows 95 compatibility.
Probably the most useful setting to start off with would be to disable the visual themes and desktop composition, if you can’t get things working. If you are trying to run a video game, you will often need to choose “Run this program as an administrator”. You’ll have to play around with it, but most likely you can get your application working this way.

Vista compatibility problems when trying to install set up program for yumi pro mp4 player v 4.05 get message blocked due to known compatibility problems

Copy the installation to your hard drive.
now take the properties and setup it for windows xp under the tab compatibility.
now run your application with administrative privilage. right click then "Run as Administrator'

Vista's Compatibility assistant is known to have a lot of bug.

if it didn.t work then
Press the keyboard combination "Windows Key +R"
you will have run dialogue box
type in "services.msc"
in the window that appears look for "Program compatibility assistant" and then disable it.
now restart your computer and try installation
it will be fine

its recommended that you switch your os to windows 7 from vista as windows 7 is more bug free and crash is unlikely to happen

Free download for iriver E100 vedio player installation software

Here's the iRiver Plus 3 software:

It's compatible with XP and below. I haven't come across a Vista driver for it yet, but you might be able to right click on it and hit Properties and select XP compatibility in Vista, I don't know if it'll work though.

Hope this helps

Installation cd won't load

If you have a Windows-based system (esp.Vista), grab the software directly from Sandisk's website. The software itself is not Mac-compatible, even though the computer may recognize the device when plugged in.

There is not a driver - not only is this player not compatible with Vista, plugging it into a Vista computer will ruin it permanently
