Hello Kirubakaran_D,

In addition to the clean boot that Halima has suggested, you can try the following:
Right click on the .exe file and choose, "Run as Administrator".

Then see if you are still getting the error message when trying to install the broadband card.

 

Thanks,

Hi Kirubakaran_D,

 

 

1.    Have you made any recent changes on the computer?

2.    Are you able to install other programs on the computer?

 

 

There is a possibility that some third party programs installed on the computer is conflicting with program installation process.

I would suggest that you place the computer in clean boot state and check.

 

To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Reset the computer to start as usual

After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

a)        Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

b)        If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

c)        On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

d)        When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart. 

 

Hope this helps!
