I have been a long time user of the free version of ZA and have been waiting for the Vista version for quite a while.
Now that its out I gave it a try and I must say the installation was NOT error free.
I made a System Restore point before the install just in case and then installed the correct V7.1 for Vista.
Everything seemed to go OK, and during the process Vista asked me if a driver install should be allowed and I said OK.
(I only have one user accnt and its an Administrator).
The install progressed and then all of a sudden I got a BSOD!
It started doing a crash dump and then re-booted.
Then it seemed to be coming back up but during the welcome screen when once again I got a BSOD!!
OH GREAT, I can't even get back to a running system!!!
So I re-booted again and hel my breath and somehow Vista came back up!
It did know that there were some BSOD's and stated so and offered to try and analyze then on-line but nothing seemed to happen.
And then ZA began to come up and even seem to be working!!
I re-booted and Vista came ou OK and so did ZA.
So it seems it worked but I still have no idea what caused the BSOD.
Since I though it installed a device deiver, I looked in the Device Manager and I don't see any bad devices but I also didn't see any devices that looked like they came from ZA.
Is there a device drive that ZA inatalls and if so where can I look to see if its runing correctly.
For now it seems to be OK, but until I re-boot several more times I'm still not 100% everything's OK!!!
