  •  It's very possible the AutoRun Feature is corrupt on the other system then...I have ran into this before, and cannot remember the exact solution.

     Personally I did a clean install on my system, booting from the DVD. If you cannot boot from the DVD, then it is not anything to do with a software issue, considering you are saying that it worked fine on another system...Of course you are losing all of your information by doing a clean install, so this may not be appropriate for you.

     I know there are other options than this, but personally I would just reformat,  because it could be many other possible reasons as to why it won't work correctly.

     This may help though you resolved the issue by installing on a different system...In addition, this may not apply to you...still may be helpful for a future reference.

  • This may be a primitive, and simple answer...But, my first thought was whether or not you have the official DVD version from Microsoft, or the downloaded ISO version. If it is the ISO version, I would download the ISO again because it may be corrupt. I have previously ran into issues with this evaluating other programs...

  • Do you have problems with the Autorun feature for any other CD, or DVD?

  • Weird. I put the same CD in another PC and it works just fine. I decided to just install it on that PC. Make life easier.

  • yup, if the DVD cannot be autorun on difference system, I would suggest to re-download. If it can be from from other system and you can use it to boot up and install Vista. It should not have any problem on disc. So, it should be the software problem on specific computer only.

  • i am having trouble opening the disk.  i get

     "E:\setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application" 

    When i boot from disk on startup it works fine except i want to upgrade not reinstall and the option for upgrade is grayed in and says it is unavailable.  It says i need to open from windows to upgrade system but i can't because of the error message.

    Please help me!

  • Please CRC check you DVD disc first. If the disc got error, you can't run the setup.exe

    Also, if you want to do a upgrade, you need to make sure you have enough space on the existing Hard Drive.

  • did you try to burn it in a lower speed?

  • Hi all,

    I have read somewhere that you dont have to burn it on a DVD disk, you donwloaded this program from http://www.magiciso.com. Well i did that and open the ISO file and ran the setup.exe. But it said it came up with an error saying that autorun.dll cannot befound or is corrupt.

    Is there anyone out there that has that file so i can use vista? I spent 54 hours downloading this file... and to redownload it, its not going to happen.

    So 2 things, if any one has the file autorun.dll can you email it to me or give me a link form where i can download it off the internet? I cannot find it.

    The second thing, do you have to burn it on a dvd disk?

    Thanks very much for your help in the future. You can email it to support@reallyfunny.grabyourhosting.com or email.reallyfunny at hotmail.com.

    Thanks

    Thanks

  • I think you may try to extract the files to another HD partition and run the setup within XP.

  • I ran into this same problem and found that it was the DVD-ROM would not read the DVD-R that I recorded on.  It worked fine on a newer DVDrom.  So, I just removed that DVDrom from that machine and used it on the system I wanted Vista installed on

  • I think it is the most common reason for not getting Vista to be installed.

  • I also get the 0x3E7 'autorun.dll' error when I try to insert the DVD when running XP.  I also get the error
    when I try to run setup.exe.  This is a DVD that was shipped to me from Microsoft, is there any way to check it?

    When I try to boot from the DVD, I get the error 'Windows cannot open the required file E:\Sources\Install.wim.  The file may be corrupt or missing.  Error code:0x80070570'

    Do I need to get a new disc from Microsoft? or could it be my drive?  I don't really have the option of trying to install it on another machine.

    Thanks.

  • I think it may be the problem of the DVD drive. Try to find another one to test it!

  • I was also having issues with the "E:\setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application" message when trying to autorun/setup from a DVD. I traced it back to a copy of Nero OEM suite that came with my DVD burner. Uninstalled, and everything works once again.

    Hope this helps...

  • Seem the problem can be cuase by 3rd party software or hardware problem. Everyone should check them first.

    It;s time to close this thread.
