Re: Code 80073712
Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows Vista, but only for Service Pack 2 (SP2). This support for Windows
Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2) is valid until November 26, 2009. Availability of
chat or e-mail support differs depending on your geographic location. Go to
select appropriate category (e.g., Installation).
If /you/ need further assistance in this newsgroup, please begin your own
new thread, Paul.
