In Windows Vista when starting the software I receive an error message concerning a 'Connection Failure' or 'Transfer Failure'

Windows Vista has strong security features which sometimes causes problems with software. You need to run the application as administator (if your Windows account doesn't have adminstrator rights).

To do so start the application by right clicking on the icon and selecting 'Run as administrator'.

Furthermore have a look at ”I think i've a general connection problem”.
