Trouble installing MM8

Postby Gharik » Jul 28 2012, 16:18

Running Windows Vista 64bit. Whenever I run the setup.exe it gets stuck preparing the Installshield wizard at 99% then just goes away. I've already scoured every inch of Google for a fix and found nothing...I've tried running it as administrator and still nothing.

Also tried turning off my firewall & real time security scanner to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.

Look into your task manager and see what happens with the setup process. Does it disappear, or is it still running in the background?

most of the time the setup.exe disappears, and the 2 programs(_isdel.exe & _ins5576._mp) that do the installing appear in the task manager but they don't do anything.

Update: I'm really not sure why, but it finally worked...

Perhaps you waited long enough? Sometimes they take a while to do anything, without displaying that they are still active.
