driver problem

im having problems rnning the driver that came with my new gpu and because its an xfx i need to run the cd provided for registering it for a warrenty. ive already got the most up to date driver

when i try and run the cd nothing happens so i tried again keeping an eye on the processes and the process *setup 32bit* started and vanished 2 seconds later

any suggestions?





*EDIT*


****Fixed*** i copied all items of cd to a folder, then ran in vista sp2 compatability mode

Hey Gilly

We meet again. The setup is 32 bit your running 64 bit. Need to get a 64 bit driver from the mfr.
