hi I have vista ultimate 32bit. I ran nero setup, canceled and reran several times. The setup hasn't any error just reran. Then after choosing "typical" (next to custom setup) it displays: "Following software must be installed first: Nero Product Patcher Microsoft DirectX 9.0c ImagXPress Microsoft XML 4.0 SP2 Microsoft CRT 2005 KB973544 " But I have vista so there is directx 10.0. I installed all windows update. Do you all see this screen also?
