Ovi Player + W7 64bit + XP VPC

I am having this problem where I cannot install the new Ovi Player on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Retail, everytime it gets to the screen of the installation where the files are downloaded then copied it downloads then fails immediately, it does say "Failed" in red.


So I tried the compatibility mode thing in Windows 7 on the setup file, no luck.


So then I thought why not just use XP, downloaded the Virtual PC thing and installed XP and then install Ovi Player.

It worked. Yay... except its a different PC so that means I have to re-register but the problem now is that when I press the sign-in button it "loads" ie. the circle in the bottom left of Ovi Player spins. Then.. stops it stays on the home screen.


I don't know if this is the right category/forum to post it in but yeah hopefully I can get some help.

Oh and I am aware that Ovi Player isn't full compatible with Windows 7...
