Problems getting past Compatibility part of the install

I am running Vista SP1 32 bit version on my computer now. I have a Windows 7 X86 version I am trying to install. When I go to install it gets to the Compatibility part of the install, put up a blank box with the message that the info has been saved to my desktop. The only button to click is close. If i do that 7 starts over. The info saved on my desktop it blank also. Nothing. I also can't run the windows 7 Compatibility advisor from Microsoft when you download it. Any ideas??

Are you making a clean install or an update one? Updates are usually a problem. Try making a clean install...
About the advisor - are you running this from and admin user? Have you tried running it with admin rights? Does the advisor install correctly? I have tried the advisor on several rigs and it seems to work just fine...
