Vista setup entry point error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im trying to install Vista CTP build 5308 to test application compatibility, hence I need to upgrade from XP home.

    I have a technet CD which works fine on a clean boot install, but on upgrade errors when trying to check the activation key.

    Error - The procedure entry point DecodePointer couldnt be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll

    Error suggests key is the issue, but it is printed on the technet CD. I also have 2 other build versions but no keys. Build 5270 & 5231, anyone got keys?

    Any help appreciated, its driving me mad! DG
