My system configuration : Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1.

When I try to install NXT software v2.1, at the beginning itself I am getting the error below:

Microsoft Visual C++ runtime

Runtime Error

program: D: Nxt/setup.exe

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support time for more information.

I had the same problem in Win XP also. Let me know how to fix this issue.

It sounds like you have the wrong NXT release. Where did you get that v2.1? Can you give the link? – pcantin Dec 7 '12 at 1:44
You could also try updating Microsoft Visual. A lot of people have this problem for various Windows applications. – Timtech Oct 11 '13 at 14:35
