Am I doing something wrong? Please help.

 

I have not tried this on Vista but on Win 7 so I know the install works.Have you changed the config.xml to allow for client installation?However this link has detailed instructions for installation  and it does include Vista x64http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx /
