Hey Nehoma! Good to see you.. :) Have you tried running the software as an administrator? Also I don't know if this site would be of any help but I'll post it regardless:
Hi, have forgotten your name. As you know I dont come on much these days. I was 80 last week, had a great party.
I got the thing installed. I found a Microsoft help page that I had missed before.
Thanks for your reply though
