Title: installer failing
Post by: SC Fan on July 05, 2006, 05:29:49 am
I downloaded


from the website. Put them all in the same folder, Double clicked on the installer. A dos window blinks on the screen and disappears. Nothing happens. I have Norton on, I have an internet connection, I have firefox as my default browser, and I am running windows XP.

What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like the installer download failed somehow. It should be 1082062 bytes long; if it's much smaller, you have saved something else with the installer's name. Try downloading again; note that SourceForge download links do not point directly to the files; they point to a mirror selection page and choosing "Save link as..." for such a link will result in a HTML file with the same name as the file you intended to download (which, obviously, won't work).
