Service Manuals On Cd With Vista?

Just bought a CD off ebay... 156 service and workshop manual, didnt work! I use Vista and was told by the seller that it must be clashing with an already installed program..Mmmm, tried installing it on my laptop , vista OS too, still no Joy. Has anybody else got one of these CD's to work under the vista OS or will I have to buy one of those book things! however...to quote from an earlier post 'The worst thing is you can't get a Haynes manual for a 156' oh arse!

thanks in advance

Hi Alex

Try right clicking on the executable and 'run as administrator', not 100% sure if this will work, if it's a 32 bit application it should, maybe though it's an older 16bit application which i would suggest won't run.

Good Luck

Alex, how about some pics and a write up on your Vantage in the Other Marques section of the site? Love to see some pics of it
