One option is to backup (or rename) the original Defrag program. Then put in your other defrag program into system32, and rename it to the name of the Vista one. That would at least fool Vista into opening your program instead, since it only opens a file and doesn't check anything else.

Make sure your app is a 32bit one.

oh can you open the app just by clicking on it? Does it only give this error when you try to launch it from that cpl?
