Windows Vista lacks proper Cd burning abilities with the built-in burner software included in Vista. Although this problem persists on all windows platforms, there are many alternative third party applications to burn DVD. One of the applications is Nero. But when installed on Windows Vista, it refuses to run Nero (7 version) and to tell the truth Nero 7 is not compatible with Vista. Nero Maker Ahead is not interested in releasing a Vista compatible installer until this operating system gets stable. 

 

The problem is that the installation breaks when you try to install Nero 7 on Vista. But there is a possiblity to run Nero 7 on Vista, but it in a highly unofficial way.

Hacking down Nero versions are available on the internet and the project is called Nerolite and this will install smoothly on Vista. This project is gaining popularity day-by-day and you can expect more from them in the future.

The registry error which comes with the Nero installation disappears with the use of the new installer (Inno Setup Installer) .

Nerolite is adware and malware free. With 17,000 downloads from softpedia and still growing, it is 100% clean and is trustworthy.

Download latest Nero 7 lite installer from softpedia and install it on Vista; and, it results in a flawless install.

From here onwards follow the basic steps that will lead to a perfect installation of Nero 7 lite. 

When you initiate the install you will get the welcome screen to Nero 7 lite and i don’t think i have to instruct this step with an image.

Move to next window by clicking on Next and you will see registration form. No need to fill the serial number and click on next to proceed to further step and click Finish. That’s easy and Nero is installed on your vista operating sytem.

But this doesn’t make your Nero 7 lite install valid, you still need to follow one extra step after the installation to make it run correctly. You need to run this application in administrator mode. It is easy to make a application run in adminstrator mode in vista.

Here I will get you through some of the steps with the help of images.

step2: running nero 7 lite vista in adminstrator mode

This is the only way you can install Nero on Vista. If you follow these steps in order you will have a perfect installation and you are now using Nero 7 on vista .

    I was actually pretty angry when I found out that Nero didn’t work on Vista. I know every company has to make business decisions about what they support, but I paid good money for Nero and then … plop, I couldn’t use it anymore after upgrading to Vista. Ridiculous! I will never invest in Nero again, even though I absolutely love the program.

    Surely this has been resolved in Vista now. My system came with Roxio Creator and to the extent I’ve needed to create CDs and DVDs, it’s done the job. Thanks for the information.

    I was able to get Nero to work on Vista but I’m having problems with getting it to work on Windows 7. I don’t really need it with Windows 7 but I got used to using Nero.

    Nero combines huge amounts of features in a compact and easy to use package. It handles disc duplicating and pre-mastering with ease, supported by a cover designer and even an audio file editor. The excellent GUI desing keeps all the functions handy and guarantees that simple tasks can be done quickly. usedfordtrucks.org

    If it’s happening during the writing process then the problem is with the drive. If you do a fair amount of burning the lens may have a buildup, try running a lens cleaning disc in the drive. If that doesn’t help then it’s possible the laser is failing and the drive would need replacing.
