    I am trying to install a program on my windows 7 home premium, and after using the installer, nothing happens for a long time. This has happened before, and sometimes the installer starts after a few minutes, but sometimes it takes over an hour, and often i have to just shut it down, because i can't wait for it. Does anyone know about this problem, and a solution for it? In the Joblist, under processes, it is called SETUP.EXE*32, and looks inactive.
    Please help me with this, it is driving me insane.

    If you check the Event Viewer, do you see any errors or warnings around the time you attempt these installs?

    Have you tried shutting down any anti-virus programs during these installs?

    Are these programs Win 7 compatible?

    Does your system work fine otherwise?
