Hello Apolomeister,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Have you tried installing the Vista drivers in compatibility mode for Vista? Also 'run as admin.'

Right click on the install file and select properties. Compatibility tab. Check 'run this prog. in compat mode for 'Vista'. At the bottom, check 'run as admin.'

Please keep us posted.

Next I would check the device manager. See if there are any devices with warnings. Control Panel/System and Security/system/device manager.

If the problem is the WiFi adapter, then have you installed the driver for that? Does that show up in device manager?

i installed the wifi adapter but i cant see anywhere.. I still cant instal Chipset drivers and Audio, i put everything to run as admin, but this time it doesnt show an error, it says Instalation Failed.

Im pretty sure i didnt see it in the device manager. I know its well pluged because i use wifi with XP.

Hey Apolo,
What kind of Wifi card do you have? I found a random driver the other day that worked wonders for my Wifi card (netgear), after installing it I had full Wifi support.

Also what drivers are you trying to install? If you have the drivers extracted to the desktop (out of a zip file). Try not clicking on the EXE but going into the device manager and pointing the object you want installed (graphics card, sound card etc.) to the driver file extracted on the desktop.
