Pervasive DB installation problems on Vista

By smoyers ·
I am trying to install a software program(Peachtree) on my laptop (Vista). I have tried all the tips concerning allowing through the firewall, disabling antivirus software, disabling IVp6, etc. It fails to install and gives messages that Database manager and PSql database can not start. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Did you buy this software and had it run under XP?..

If so then you will need to do this...
1). Delete it off your system.
2). Re-boot your system.
3). When you load on the program, do not install it, right click on it and select "properties > compatibility" then select the "run this program in compatibility mode" and then select the "Windows XP (service pack 2)" option. Now run/install the program.
Hope all goes well.
