I'm finding that I'm running across more and more that Vista will not allow the instillation of legitimate programs, like this one:


It says that it isn't a valid Win32 application?

Also, Vista wont allow updates for a few programs like Adobe and my Logitech web cam update.

Is there a way to get Vista to allow them?

That simple,

John :huh:

Let's start with going to microsoft for IE7 since it is their application, http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx

Make certain you choose the correct Operating System.
