hi,

have you tried to install the program with Administrator Privileges and in Windows XP compatibility mode?

Run as Administrator or Elevated Admin rights = Right Click on .EXE file (install file) and a small window will open, you will then see an option that says "Run as Administrator"... you now left click on this option.
