help cannot install driver for touchpad

Hy Guys,
I have a new laptop and a guy at the local pc shop upgraded it to vista ultimate for me. The trouble is I get an error when I try to install the driver that I downloaded from the oficial website, the error is could not find OS specific setup program when I run the setup.

Acer Aspire Laptop
Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

any ideas welcome

What is the model number of your Acer Aspire?

It is the 5920G but can only find referance to the 5920. It works ok but without the correct driver I cannot disable taping.

Is this the driver you got "Touchpad_Synaptics_v10.0.15_NC_Vista_Vista64_X64..." from the first dropdown box on this page and did you unzip it into a folder before trying to install it? click here.
I don't use Vista myself so can't really test it out for you.
