$oem$ driver directory in Vista installation sources by Steve Bishop
Hello, Does anyone know if it is possible to add third-party drivers to a Vista installation source (e.g. on a network share) by adding an $oem$\ $1\drivers directory to the source tree as with XP? If possible, this would be very helpful and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Steve Bishop

"Attempt to access invalid address" by WanderingSage
Everytime I attempt to install something I download, mostly in the case of trialware for anti-stuff, that message pops up. It dosen't seem to be selective of what it prevents, but reguardless of how many times I install something, it just won't install the item. What is casing this problem and how would I go about fixing it?
