I've just copied and pasted this text from a web page that I found. Basically, you'll have to run it in compatibility mode for an earlier system - Windows 95 or Windows 98.
Here’s how to access a program’s Compatibility Mode in XP:
Find the executable or program shortcut icon you’d like to run. Right-click the icon and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab and place a checkmark next to the text labeled “Run this program in compatibility mode.” Select the operating system that the program was originally intended to run on. You may need to fine-tune the three fields under “Display Settings” if an older program requires 640×480 resolution or 256 colors. Click Apply.
badhair, Have tried to compatibility thing I'm told the program needs Windows NT v 5 or later, so I put in 2000 or nothing, altered the display but still came up with the same error. I was trying to install the v 2 from the dvd as that was free for the licence.
Sea Urchin As I am the only user I assume that I have full administrative rights - I have installed O&O SafeErase from the dvd with no problems!
Just installed it on my XP Pro system without any trouble.
For the runtime error you could try checking in Internet explorer as follows:
Open Internet Explorer. Click on Tools, then Internet Options. Click on Advanced tab. Scroll to Browsing. Under Browsing,look for and check "Disable Script Debugging(Internet Explorer)" Also check "Disable Script Debugging(other)". Also make sure that "Display a notification about every script error" is unchecked.
