    Default Install A5V1 on Vista Machine

    My old desktop is dying. All new machines come with Visa now. Just to check it out before buying I tried to install on my granddaughters Vista notebook. It wouldn't even read the disk. Any suggestion other than upgrading A5? I tried that a few years ago (somewhere I have disks for V5) but I couldn't get it to run the reports I need. Only way I can upgrade is if I can find a consultant to configure it for me.

    I'm just out of Duluth. Who's Kenn, & is he a consultant? How could I get in touch with him.
    Thank you, Joyce

    Consultants are referenced here. I don't see Kenn listed as a certified consultant.

    You might try running the setup program as "Administrator".

    Find the Setup file and right click on it and select "run as administrator".

    I would have thought I'd done that when I installed in the first place, but I don't remember. I'm going out of town on holiday for two weeks and will look for the discs when I get back and do a re-install. Can I just reinstall, or should I delete and do a fresh install?
    Thanks again,
