I'm not sure if Vodafone is compatible with Vista. I thought it was only compatible with OS's up to XP. I'm not 100% sure though, maybe you just need a driver of some sort.

I am not able to install the sprintsmartview to my dell studio 17 computer i keep getting an error 1721.


Since this error seems to reference the "Windows Installer" which is separate from the Installshield engine, I would probably try updating that:
The error by Windows Installer Package happens in Windows Vista because the of custom actions set in the installer package fail with missing permissions, involving custom actions that scheduled for both immediate or deferred execution. Visual Studio custom actions run while impersonating the installing user but only run with standard user privilege, and not with elevated administrator privilege as required in Windows Vista, if the msidbCustomActionTypeNoImpersonate bit is not set. Even though Windows Vista prompts for privilege elevation, however, only custom actions that are running in the Local System account get elevated correctly, while custom actions that impersonate as the current user do not.
Thus, the error usually happens on older versions of setup installer which install or uninstall programs meant for earlier versions of Windows operating system, such as XP, 2000, Me and 9x. However, if you're the programmer or developer for the installer program, probably you can do much to change the bit or installer sequence to solve the issue. But, there are still resolutions to fix the error 1721 that happens in Windows Vista, and probably has more than one one solutions or workarounds that users can try to get the software program installed.
Run an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator option to start the installation
This method will probably allow most failed .msi installer to install/uninstall probably. Simply open an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator setting, and then execute the .msi executable.

My search has reviled a couple of things.
First, is your video cards chip-set supported?
If so, are the latest drivers installed?
Is Direct X up to date?
You may have corrupt or missing or data in the Windows registry.
Try the windows Installer cleanup utility. After that use a registry cleaner

Cisco VPN Client for 32 bit vista


Download the latest version of the Cisco VPN Client. My version is 5.0.03.0530.

You can also try using the Microsoft "MSIZap" utility to ensure a clean uninstall. It is a command-line utility. You will need the original MSI install file from the Cisco VPN client to use MSIZap.

You can download it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370523.aspx

Error 1721


What Is Error 1721? This is an error commonly witnessed when you try to uninstall a program using the "Add or Remove Programs" in Microsoft Windows XP. The message itself will read: "Error 1721. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personal or package vendor."
Resolution #1: Reregistering the Windows Installer service It is known that if the Microsoft installation engine malfunctions or is internally corrupted, there is a possibly that you will not be able to remove programs that you used the Windows Installer, the service that administers the installation and configuration of programs, to install with. Thus, in the case of error 1721, it is necessary to unregister and then reregister the Windows Installer service to fix the corrupted parts of the engine. This can be accomplished through the Safe Mode by:
  1. Enter your computer in Safe Mode by:
    • Restarting the computer and pressing F8 after the BIOS information is shown
    • Select Safe Mode and Enter
    • Select your computer and Enter
  2. Log on as the local administrator
  3. Open up the command prompt by clicking Start, Run, and then typing cmd.exe and Ok
  4. At the command prompt, first unregister the service by typing msiexec /unregister and then hitting Enter
  5. Reregister the service by typing msiexec /regserver and then hitting Enter
  6. Type Exit to exit the command prompt safely
  7. Try to remove the program once again using Add or Remove Programs
I hope this helps you out. Thanks

Error 1721


Try the following regardless of the software as this is the common error message provided by Microsoft. Of course this won't rule out either a corrupt installer or incompatibility's
  1. Disable/Configure any anti-spyware or anti-virus software on your system during installation process. For example: Spybot Search and Destroy Program or Norton Anti-Virus
  2. Check to see if any spyware or adware is installed on your system blocking the completion of install process.
  3. Check to see if you find any unwanted entry in Add/Remove Programs or Internet Explorer - Add/On's section (Tools - Internet Options - Programs -> Manage Add On's). If you found one, remove/disable this entry.
  4. On Windows Vista, disable UAC (User Access Control) feature for your account

This page applys to XP,

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891985

but the solution should be similar. If you've done the registering, the next suspect would be something corrupt in your VPN package.

Try a fresh download or copy of it, and be sure you run as administrator during the install.
