Problem running Revolution Player.exe and Rev Stack on Vista/Dell

Well, got my completed program out for testing on Vista. It had run  
fine on my VMWare XP/Mac OSX; but we get the following dialog when  
dragging the stack onto the Revolution Player:

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not  
support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to  
compress the file."

I assume it means the Media Player and there was no compression  
performed at any stage. A CD was burnt on my Mac Pro with three  
folders and two text files (read mes). Two of the folders contained  
the Mac version stacks and runners; the third contained the Revolution  
Player.exe file and the two Windows Stacks. After dragging the Windows  
Version folder to the desktop, opening it and dragging the main stack  
onto the Revolution Player, the above dialog was presented.

Has anyone else had success running a similar condition on a Vista  
machine? Is there a work around?
