Constant Vista Ultimate New Program Install Error

Vista ultimate 64 bit error "setup has stopped working"

I have been getting this same error message repeatedly on multiple programs I have tried to install. At first I thought it was just the program not being Vista 64 bit compatible, but I've gotten it about 6 or 7 times in a row now on different install attempts.

I have already tried to use the "run as administrator", but did not help.

Greatly appreciate any comments. Thanks.

    Thanks for the info Nitro! I did already try to run it in the XP compatability mode, but gave me the same generic error: "setup has stopped working". And it is not happening during the install for the operating system... my computer is up and running fine, just when I try to install a new program. I realize that there are compatability issues out there with vista 64 bit and maybe it was just bad luck, but it has happened to me about 6 times in a row now, so I'm thinking it is something on my end and not the different programs.



    I would love to learn more about the "hidden" admin mode, please!



    Thanks again!

    There's a few ways, depending on your release version (remember I was using RC1)

    Try this:

    from the command prompt enter this exactly as shown:

    net user administrator /active:yes

    then type exit and restart

    When it has restarted, choose that account, and try installing the software from within that name.

    If that doesn't work, turn it back off by typing this form the command prompt:

    net user administrator /active:no

    Restart

    There are other ways... let me know and we can take this further.

    Sorry, the first time this post came up, it wasn't complete, now I see the rest of it.

    Have you tried to use XP compatability mode?

    There are also two 'different' admin modes on Vista, one is "hidden".

    I beta tested Vista 64 for quite some time, and ran into this. The only program that wouldn't work was AVG Free edition (the premium edition supposedly works with 64 bit).

    If you need more info on the "hidden" admin mode, let me know.

    Can you be more specific?

    Is this happening during the installation of the operating system itself, or when trying to run a program?
