Cryptext v3.21 help

I searched the forums to see if anyone else had posted this question, and no one had.

Basically, I had Cryptext 3.21 on my old computer that died. I was able to get all of my files off the harddrive, but I have a few that are encrypted and so I cannot open them. I would like to run Cryptext on my current computer (that runs Vista), but it will not let me install the program. It says:

An error occurred while copying Cryptext.dll.
Cannot copy file to destination directory.
Click Retry to retry the operation or click Cancel to

I think it is the wasy Vista is set up. I looked through my old harddrive from my dead computer and found in Windows/System32/ShellExtension the Cryptext folder with Cryptext.dll, Cryptext.GID, Cryptext.hlp and Cryptext.inf.3

Searching around the internet I found this site where, in the first two paragraphs, the guy describes how he couldn't get the program to install on Vista. (Unfortunately he offered no fix except for using a different encryption program from then on out.)

Does anyone know a way I can install Cryptext onto my computer so that I can decrypt my files. I know the password I used, I just need the program to work. (Or an alternative decryption method so that I can read my files, if possible.)

Thanks, Will
