Hello sieghart2heart.Do you have Vista 32-bit or 64-bit?Because if you have the 64-bit version, currently Bitdefender doesn't support both XP 64 and Vista 64.

Hi sieghart2heart

You can try this in the meantime rightclick on the installer of BitDefender and choose for properties,compatibility,choose for windows xp (sp2). I can't test it myself because I don't have windows vista.

Hi ballcar

Try also to check run the program as an administration.
Can you ignore that message? I can't test it. Softwin will release a 64 bit version but I don't know when exactly. Sorry but I don't know any other solutions.

Regards
Niels
