    Please help. I am trying to install and use VCD 5202 on Vista Business on a Dell laptop. I ran the VCD install program as Administrator and am logged on to an administrator account, but I get an "Installation failed!" message box which looks to be timed about the same time the setup is extracting vclone.inf.

    I did try the following awsome posts from:
    - KnoWei: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=8320
    - Faria: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=69&page=2.

    But alas, after clicking ok on the "Installation Failed!" message box above VirtualCloneDrive Setup reports "Completed!" following which no new storage controller ever appears in Device Manager after scanning for new hardware. There is also no other category.

    I also checked the hard drive and the following file did exist:
    C:\Windows\Inf\VClone.inf.
    I right clicked on that file and chose Install and got an "Install Error" message box that said "The INF file you selcted does not support this method of installation."

    Details of the target PC are as follows:
    Microsoft Windows Vista Business
    6.0.6000 Build 6000
    Dell Inspirion 1720 Laptop
    Intel Core2 Duo
    HAL Version 6.0.6000.16407.

    Any help you could offer would be most appreciated.
