Problems installing InstallAnywhere on Vista - please help!

Not sure whether this is the right place for this or not. Basically I am trying to install Football Manager 2008 on my Vista PC, having already successfully installed it on my XP laptop.

The InstallAnywhere progress bar reaches 100%, hangs for a few seconds, and then crashes with a "LaunchAnywhere has stopped working" error. This is the error I get:

Problem signature

I also downloaded the InstallAnywhere Evaluation install from this site just to check, and it does the exact same thing.

My graphics card is an ATI Radeon X1300 Pro which is completely up to date, Java is completely up to date, I am running it as an Administrator - have tried everything and am about pulling my hair out!!

Any ideas?

Ask the company selling "Football Manager 2008". This forum is for developing installers, not for debugging sold ones...

But it also applies to installing the demo version of InstallAnywhere on this site.

Yes footiefan, but you don't really want to install IA on your Vista, what you're interested in is the Football Manager 2008, aint'it? Could you just check if your DEP (Data Execution Prevention) is enabled, and if it is, disable it and try running the installer again. But I second Yves in urging you to look for support with Football Manager makers.
