as per the forums i googled, it will only work on windows xp 32bit.
what you need to do is install a virtual PC of windows xp on your windows vista and run it there. for more info on how to do that click here. if that didn't work out for you or the steps are not friendly, there are plenty of sources u can find for how to install a virtual PC.
let me know if it works out for u

Load the BMW scanner software to your Laptop. Then reboot and hit F8, and load windows "without signature for drivers" and turn of your WiFi.
That's how I got mine to work.
