PC Backup doesn't work with Windows Vista

I just bought a new laptop with Windows Vista but I got an error message (1628 failed to complete installation) when I tried to load PC Backup on it. I have never used this program before and bought it about a year ago but never installed it on the old computer. Can I get this software to work now?

Thanks!

    I bought the PC Backup Program over a year ago to use with my former computer which was compatible with the software. I never used it.



    I recently replaced my computer and now the PC Backup software is not compatible with Windows Vista. I wanted to know if there is some way to update the software with to make it Vista-compatible software?



    I was under the impression that the Windows backup program wasn't as good as separate back-up programs. This may have changed with Windows Vista? Can I rely solely on the Vista backup program?



    Thanks for your help!

Microsoft bought this company and shut the company, and its support sites (including the above site) down. Microsoft also removed all info from its website about this acquisition. The company's software was integrated into Windows Vista.

You must check the package to ensure that the program is windows vista compatable. Please do note that Vista does have its own back software embedded. Simply type into the start search bar on the start menu backup and recovery.

This issue needs to go back to Newtech. They can guide you through the issue. Is the external drive LARGE enough? Windows backup takes huge amounts of room. I suggest Handy Backup Pro, it can pull backup across networks, and push the data to drives and ONLINE locations.

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Windows Vista - No internet-no backup


Sometimes after you install Norton antivirus products, most notably Norton System works, the firewall included with the antivirus will block the internet from working properly. Right click on your Norton Icon on the right side of your task bar & turn norton off. Try your internet again. You may have to close & re-open Internet explorer after you shut off your norton. The other thing is you could remove your firewall entirely, as your router should have a firewall in it, and if you are using win xp, it also has a firewall. This kind of configuration sometimes causes some rather unusual effects.
