Hi Lelia,
That particular error is caused do to running the setup with the wrong access permissions under Vista. Tell your husband he needs to run the setup as administrator by using the run as administrator command from the context menu when right clicking on the file or by using the Windows context key on the keyboard. Now, can i offer a bit of advice? Windows Vista can be quite a bit different from XP. There are several new concepts introduced under Vista including improved security management. One of the problems under XP was that it had various security features, but users would not turn them on or didn't know how to configure them properly. That lead to mass spread virus attacks and hackers breaking into XP etc. Under Vista Microsoft changed security policies by making it fairly secure out of the box. They have taken after Mac and Linux by forcing users to run as standard users unless specifically instructed to envoke an admin right on a file or program. They also have improved user specific rights to files and programs so that anything in your own ddirectories is safe to run, open, use, and can be blocked from other user's access. Except from the system administrator of course. If you are going to be a Windows Vista user everyone should read up on it, and find out how to deal with the new security systems properly. Yes, you can turn them off, but in my opinion that totally defeats the point of upgrading from XP to Vista since security is one of Vista's high points. Also I have been testing the new Windows 7 OS here, and I'm going to tell everyone coming out the gate things aren't changing. User Account Control is still here, and here to stay. Though, only major difference between the Windows 7 UAC management and the Vista one is that Windows 7 does allow you to go into the advanced settings for your system and customize how UAC protects your computer.

We'll try that again, he says he thought he did but he's going to try that now, thanks.

I know that was the first file I installed and all the rest of the games I got went right in there.

Hi.
Try installing the winkit.zip file.
It puts all the dll files needed to run the games in there.
Hth.
