Question Desktop Manager 4.2 Sp1 installs slow on Vista

Please Login to Remove!

Under Windows XP it installs like in 1 minute. However, under Vista it takes around 15-20 minutes to install. Is this normal ? Thanks

Considering all the BAD things I have heard about Vista, it would not be a big shock... Having said that, I do not think it should take that long.... Maybe a Vista user can chime in and answer for you....

Installing DM on Vista IS very slow. But it works.

I'm running Vista unfortunately. When I installed it from the CD that came with the phone it installed pretty fast, definitely not 15+ minutes. I hate vista, I can't wait to reinstall XP, just dont have the time lately.
