Problem installing Comodo firewall

by bion99 / August 12, 2008 10:15 AM PDT

I have two pc's both using Firefox (new version). I tried to install the Comodo firewall today and both got the same error repeatedly. After I download the software and click on it in my download box it opens a winzip extractor window and appears to run correctly. Then I get an error message that says
"error o running command.\cfp_setup_3.0.25.378_xp_vista_x64.exe" Help please?

I see in that error message mentioned x64. Do you have Vista x32 or x64?

Could be you are attempting to install an incorrect version for your operating system

Just a guess!
