    Unless you want the MS-DOS version for a particular reason, I would recommend downloading the Windows version of the program from http://

    Certain Windows Software cannot be installed on a computer without Administrative rights.

    1. Check that the username, that you log onto the computer with, has got administrative rights on the machine.
    - Windows 2000>Start>Settings>Control Panel>Users and Passwords
    - Make sure that your username belongs to the administrator group.

    Else log as as the' Administrator' if you know the password, and then you can install it probably.

    Else post your actual error msg fromm DOS.

    Anyway, its just another angle to try if stuck! cheers Paul

    You will probably get some useful answers if you provide some information about your specific computer, including what operating system you use.
