  1. When ever I try to instal Vista, I get to the checking compatability stage on

    And then it comes up with the message:

    "Runtime Error!

    Program C:|$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\setup.exe

    abnormal program termination"

    I have the same issue when running from Windows. When I boot from the CD-ROM
    it worked, although I couldn't install it anyway because it doesn't find my
    harddrive (promise fastrack 150 controller).

  5. Your post gave me a brilliant idea. I ran PCTools Registry Mechanic, and
    after it fixing over 1300 problems for me, the Vista Install started working

    Hi there I had this problem and after reading all the posts I was about to
    give up. Anyway here is what I did.

    Remove Norton Internet Security

    That when the problem started. As other posts will tell you this is due to a
    poor uninstall.

    I then removed all remaining directories and registry entries

    STILL no Joy

    I then looked at the following file
    C:\$windows.~bt\sources\panther\setupact.log and it looked like it was still
    finding some Norton stuff. I couldn't work this out anyway I finaly figured
    it out.

    There were STILL some orphan short cuts in my Start Programs list ie if I
    clicked on Start then All Programs there were still some references to Norton
    even though I had removed everything I could find etc.

    This solved the runtime error problem.

    The real bummer is once I sorted that out I got a file transerf error at 80%
    AFTER I deleted the download :( So I need to download etc and burn slowly the

    Anyway hope the above helps and dont delete the download untill its installed.

    I uninstalled Norton, I used the fix shown in a another post. I ran
    registry Mechanic and I still get the same runtime error message.
