    Unknow NT operating system code 6 detected

    I keep getting a error window with cmdiag in the windows name and the
    following error: "Unknow NT operating system code 6 detected" and when I
    press OK, it says "Read config file failed!"

    What's wrong?

    Try another form of install:

    Hi,

    I have the same (anoying) problem. I've read the article after the install,
    but I'm pretty sure I've did exactly what it tells me to do.
    Any workaround or something else?

    thanks

    I found out what was wrong with my installation. My omnikey smartcard readers
    XP drivers had installed a .cpl file that vista really didn't like. When I
    deleted the .cpl file everything was OK.
