WLM says it's installed, It's not because it's NEW PC

Hi,

Just downloaded WLM 2011 to install on a new W7 Pro laptop. When I tried to install it, I got this msg, see below:

I chkd program files & my uninstaller & they indicate no WLM installed.

Is there a reason or preferably a solution?

Is the new Notebook running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Win7? If it's the 64-bit version also look in C:\Program Files (x86) which is where 32-bit programs get installed.

In Control Panel / Programs and Features, do you have a listing for Windows Essentials ?
