Windows 7: Specific setup.exe file will not run at all

26 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Specific setup.exe file will not run at all

Just formatted a laptop, reinstalled windows7 and all of the drivers.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 7738G-6006.

Here's the problem: To get the volume slider on the keyboard to work, I need to install Launch Manager. I found the download on the website and extracted it. When I run setup.exe though, absolutely nothing happens. It doesn't even show up for a split second in task manager.

I tried the same file on another computer and it ran just fine. I installed .Net framework as well as the C++ Runtime Distributable. No change. I've tried to run in compatibility as well as an administrator. I also tried Dependency Walker, it had this to say:

I tried downloading the new IE, no change, even tried DLing the DLL and putting it in the folder and that had no change either.

I NEED to get this program to install... any ideas?

It IS on the site, you just have to go to Drivers & Downloads, then go to Notebooks, Aspire, 7738G.

Also, there is no driver to control it. Most of the buttons work, but to actually control the volume I need the program, which for some reason will not run on this computer
