First of all - welcome to BC !
Make and model of laptop ? Which variant of Vista are you using ?
According to the system requirements for this software it should certainly run on Vista. Couple of possibilities. It requires, by the look of it, at least 180+ MB of space on your hard drive - do you have this much ? If you previously had it installed, or if you have tried to install it, you may have fragments still on your system which are preventing a new install. Try uninstalling it through 'Control panel - Programs and features' or try the Revo uninstaller - a free download from BC - which you can get here -

Was this a download or is the software on a CD? If on a CD exit out of the install if it starts automatically when you insert the disk. Double click Computer, right click your optical drive and select Explore. The install file should be a exe file called setup or something similar.

Have you tried disabling your Security Software before the install? If it still does not install try installing using the Hidden Administrator Account. Open an elevated command prompt. Type CMD in the search box and Right Click > Run as Administrator. Type the following command.
net user administrator /active:yes
log out and you should see another account called Administrator. If not reboot. Login to the Administrator account and try the install. If that does not work it's possible the installer is corrupted. After you try installing then logout of Administrator. Login to your other account. Open an elevated command prompt and type.
net user administrator /active:no
