We are trying to install Microsoft Snapshot viewer on a new pc with Vista. The install fails with the error message, "32autole.dll was unable to register itself in the system registry" The user on the pc has local administrator rights and a registry search for "32autole" returned nothing.

    We did try selecting "run as administrator" when running the setup and still get the same message.
