What version of the Blackberry Desktop Manager are you trying to install?
I believe the minimum version with Vista support is BBDM 4.2 SP1.

Just download the latest version from Blackberry.com if you're unsure of what you have.

I have been running my Blackberry on Vista since it came out, and have had no problems. I have an XP-Pro laptop that will occasionally have the Desktop software crash, but not the Vista boxes.
I would just make sure to have the 4.2 SP1 Desktop software
