    Default Installing Castle Link Software on Vista??

    Has anyone had any trouble installing the Castlelink software on thier Vista machine? I keep getting an installer error saying a program required to be run by installer could not be run.

    What am I missing???

    I have it installed but you have to run it as administrator when you load it. There are some instructions on how to do this somewhere on Castles site.

    *Windows Vista requires a specific installation process. See our Castle Link FAQ page for more information.

    Found it.



    4. What are the system requirements for the Castle Link to work on a PC? Does it work with Vista?
    Castle Link is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, and Vista (32 bit version only).

    Windows Vista Installation:

    1. Download the software to your computer.

    2. Right click on the downloaded file and left click "Run as Administrator".

    3. Run the software clicking through any and all warning messages and the link will be installed.

    Thanks Doby... that worked perfectly!

    I have XP on my home PC, but my wife's laptop came with Vista, so it's what I have to deal with...
