Program won't install without erroring out

Cosmi / Photo paint studio

Specs: Windows Vista
I'm trying to install the photo paint studio by
Cosmi. It won't install without erroring out. I don't know why and there really isn't customer service for this program. Then I tried another paint program from the web and it won't run either. I have Corel Paint on my computer but its too complex a program. I wanted to use a "simpler" paint program but don't know why these programs won't simply install and run. My computer is brand new, I'm using Windows Vista. Any ideas?

Check the program requirements. Vista may be too new.

The package says that the 'minimum system requirement" is windows XP 2000 so I figured Vista would run it. I'm not sure what you mean by Vista may be "too new" but then I am not computer savvy although I work on one ALL day. I have called the geek squad at Best Buy where we purchased the computer and they said for 30 bucks they would install it or tell us why it won't install. Seems like a lot of money for a ten dollar paint program but they've been the most accessible. Online, you are the only real support I can find. I appreciate your feedback. This stuff is enough to drive a person crazy.

Be real carefull with the geek squad as they may severely overcharge you:

I'm not too positive, but I think Vista has compatable mode same as windows 7.
Try installing the prog as administrator. (eg: right click on the icon and left click on run as administrator)
If that doesn't work, right click on it and try running it in compatability mode, that may work for you.
