    Setup.exe has stopped working

    I have windows Vista Ultimate and NVidia 8600GT and when I try to install some games like Crisys or CM Dirt, even the DirectXSDK, I get this message "SETUP.EXE STOPPED WORKING ..."
    The deal is one to tell us a solution;
    Thanks!

    If you are sure the problem is not so try to update the drivers what they are. These motherboards normally tend to ask for a BIOS update to run Vista ... nothing is resolved, you have the solution that is running the applications as an administrator.
