what version? It could be on that requires an OS prior to Xp.

and in the past, installations didn't always do a thoruough system check, but that of course comes into play when you run the software.

no I said that maybe your version of Nero was meant for a  OS prior to XP, such as windows 2000 or windows me. If you have nero6 with SP1, I would upgrade first to XP SP2. This will get you updated drivers and such, fixing any potentional DLLs that could also be the problem of why Nero isn't running.

Also, did u buy this nero? And from where? Sometimes if that is a different language version, and your OS is a different one ( say OS is english and nero is chinese), then it may not run either

Which version is your nero? If it is older 5.6.6 your problem happened after you updated SP2 for your Windows XP. According to this paper http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=886264, you should update your Nero a newer version.

I know the error message you mean.  I have not come across any problems as a result of ignoring the message, and I have various clients who use Nero for various things who have ignored the message, so I think that old I.T. legend applies "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
