im having problems installing the software which ICF pointed to. i get so far with the installation then i get an error message saying 'setup was unable to complete insallation. Try to setup you display adapter with a standard VGA driver before running setup'.
Anymore ideas would be welcome.

use the ATI removal tool to completely remove the drivers and control panel for it then install the drivers again

i have used the ATI removal tool in the control panel/add/remove programs and tried to install again but get the same error message. Any other ideas.
