I suggest you to do a clean installation. You'll face a lot of problem if you just upgrade it. You can try transfer all of your file to Drive D. And you can safely format Drive C and do installation on it.

Maybe M4DM4N can advised something better.

Hello,

Windows Vista in 64 -bit format is pretty rare. Are you 100% sure your system is 64 -bit and NOT x86 (32 -bit) format. Maybe you thought that x86 meant 64 -bit or something.

Anyway, please recheck. Because, as the launcher tells you, upgrading from a 32 -bit system to a 64 -bit system is NOT possible.

Hello there,

Hmmm... That's very strange. Have you ever changed your OS before?

I'm afraid I'm out of options, if you haven't changed OS before, it may be a configuration problem with your PC.
You could also try to Google the exact error.

What I really recommend you to do is that you either copy all your files to the "D:\" driver and/or use Windows Easy Transfer to backup your files and then perform a clean installation. Clean is álways better than upgrading.
