Getting error Message when trying to install software

I hope I am posting this to the correct area.

A friend of mine has an Acer laptop with Vista Basic 32 bit.
We are both machine embroiderers that use various embroidery software. In
trying to install Embird, which like I said is embroidery software, she
continues to get the following error message:
*********
Warning
Can't write to Windows Registry!
Key: HKEY_Classes_Root\.psd
If you are running Windows, NT/2000/XP/Vista,
please log on as administrator.
**********
She is the admininstrator and she is also the only one using that computer.
We have tried having Admininstrative Controls on and we have also tried right
clicking on the install file and clicking 'run as administrator', but still
get the error.

Please keep in mind, that I am an XP user, so what I know about Vista is
just things I've read. She is a beginner. So we are like the blind leading
the blind. LOL

Any help you can give me in trying to resolve this would be appreciated.
Please don't talk techy.

Thanks so much,

Where did the file come from? A disc or a download?

If a download, delete the file and redownload it as it might be corrupt.

It was a download, but we have done this numerous times. Each time we try to
install, we download a fresh copy.

She is the admininstrator and she is also the only one using that computer.
And she is actually logged into the PC as administrator?

Before installing Embird in Vista do the following:

1. Log-in to your PC with Administrator privileges.
2. Temporarily switch OFF all anti-virus software.
3. Select "Start > Settings > Control Panel" menu.
4. Click "User Accounts" icon in the dialog box which appears on the screen.
5. Click "Turn User Account Control on or off" link.
6. Switch OFF the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer".
7. Click "OK" button to confirm this new setting and agree with Windows restarting.
8. Install Embird as explained in our tutorial.
9. Enable your anti-virus software.
Once Embird is successfuly installed, please follow these steps:

1. Aways run Embird 2006 with Administrator privileges.
2. Move mouse pointer to the icon of the Embird 2006 on the Desktop and click right mouse button for popup menu.
3. Select "Properties" command from the popup menu.
4. A dialog box will appear on the screen. Choose "Compatibility" tab.
5. Switch ON the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode" and choose "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)"
6. Click "OK" button to confirm this new setting.

Has anyone considered that this might be a problem with Embird's software and they should be contacted?

I also have purchased Embird and have had nothing but trouble with it and vista windows. Finally after much ado.. I ran the compatibilty and got it downloaded, I have tried so many things I can't remember. I also downloaded it on my old computer with XP and it works fine so I am pretty sure it is a Vista problem. I contacted the Embird Team Lead Dusan Balara and he sent some generic answers that did not apply to me. I did get the program downloaded and it works EXCEPT for one part of it.. The icons do not show in my documents file where I save my embroidery designs. This is very annoying because I purchased the iconizer plug -in as well, and a window keeps coming up that it can't write to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT for some reason.. Dusan the embird lead told me what to do about that.. go into registry and the HKEY tree structure and delete a key that reads "persistent handler". There is no such key in that tree structure on my computer. So here I sit with no program with will work on my laptop the way it should and I am not sure of whose problem it is.. Embird or Vista. IS there anyone out there that has an idea. thanks.. greatly appreciated .:cry:

Why would you assume it's a Vista problem? It sounds to me like these folks
have Windows XP compatibility down pat and have not bothered to update their
product for use in Vista. They need to fix their product so it works
properly in Vista, or tell you it won't work in Vista.
