i installed a new Dell computer today with the Windows Vista 64 bit operating system.

when i try to dowload SmartFTP i get this error message:

"SmartFTP client setup Wizard ended prematurely"
"SmartFTP client setup ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified".

any hints? ideas?

thank you.

Install the latest version from here:

Make sure that your computer does not corrupt the file when it downloads it.

I have been using SmartFTP for a long time now on Vista Ultimate 64-bit without any issues. However I have always downloaded the 64-bit version of the client. I believe I started using the client with 2.5, and then moved to 3.0 eventually.
