Sorry to hear you're having problems. Did the program even install? If not, it sounds to me like your download file may have been corrupted during the download.
If you want to find the cause of the problem, probably the first step is to check your downloaded file with a hasher program that can determine the md5 checksum of the file to see if it is corrupted. If you don't already have a hasher program, I've used both Karen's Hasher and MD5summer (both are free). I'm sure there are others, also.
Here's the hash data for my downloaded file:
File name: arena_201_setup.exe
File size: 19362770 bytes (or approx 18,909 KB, or approx 18.47 MB)
md5 checksum (hash): F9866F2FC7A0B7303712ABEC5B6B59CE
(Note that some hash programs show the hash letters in lower case. In this case, there's no difference between lower case and upper case letters.)
If you get a different md5 checksum, then it's almost a certainty that your file is corrupted.
And as a sidenote, if you don't use a download manager for downloading files, you may want to consider using one to cut down on dropped and corrupted downloads. I've used Leechget for Internet Explorer and MetaProducts Download Express for Internet Explorer and Firefox. And there are others. Here's a list of downlaod managers available from FreewareFiles:
