I keep getting an error upon starting program from my u3 launchpad. the error states "An error has occurredwhile trying to start the selected program." I have a windows vista computer. This is the first time I have had this problem. If it can not be fixed I would like my money back thank you.

    Rony,
    As you know I also use the U3 version. I have no problems with the U3 version on my laptop. I use Sandisk USB drive and initiate from there.

    A couple of thoughts.

    First regarding the download, with the UPD link you send Windows wants to change the file type to .ZIP. I humor it and then rename the file so that the U# program installer will recognize the program and do the install.

    VISTA has several quirks regarding file access, particularly when User Account Control is turned on. I mention this because where the actual safe file is located may be affecting the program. I put mine from the non U3 version on the thumb drive in it's own directory.

    If I can be of help let me know.
