please add a environment variable RANDFILE to your system configuration
which points to the etc subdirectory of your NTP installation.
Control Panel > System and Maintenance > System > Advanced Settings
On the "Advanced" tab, use the "Environment Variables" button to open
the required dialogue. Use the lower "New..." button to add a
system-wide environment variable named "RANDFILE" and assign a full
pathname to it, e.g. "C:\PROGRAM FILES\NTP\ETC\ntp.rnd".
Save and restart NTPD and it should work. The installer should do that
and I will carefully test this on Vista 32/64bit before releasing the
next version of it.
