    Hello all,

    Ive been trying to install this from cd and keeps coming up with error messages. Microsoft say it doesnt support Vista (which i have) and need to download a patch - which i have tried as well. I can get the page up but it is blank and no questions ? Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    Mike

    How about running it in a virtual machine with XP?

    I did this a while ago, this is from memory but should do the trick (worked for me anyway).

    Uninstall what you have already and reboot your PC so we can start over.
    What you need to do is create a folder on your C: drive somewhere (your desktop will do).
    Put your Readiness Review CD in and ‘Explore’ the CD.
    Copy and Paste all the CD contents into the folder you just created.
    Take the CD out.
    Have a look through the folder on your desktop for the install file (usually called setup.exe).
    Right click it and select Properties.
    Go to the Compatibility tab.
    Select compatibility mode for XP SP2 and tick the box to run as Administrator.
    Save the changes.
    Double click the setup file to install the programme.
    Complete the install.
    Right click the icon the installer put on your desktop to run Readiness Review and click Properties.
    Note down the target path and file, C:\Program Files...... etc.
    Browse to that location and find the program launch file (something.exe).
    Right click it and select Properties.
    Go to the Compatibility tab.
    Select compatibility mode for XP SP2 and tick the box to run as Administrator.
    Save the changes.
    Now it should work!
    Send all your money to me :twisted:
