Windows refuses to install/run Mini Partition Wizard software ...

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
I have tried to install the Mini Partition Wizard of the Home Edition developed by MT Solution LTD

The download completed, when trying to install it in either the Program Files path and also on the Progran Files (x86) I get the same frustrating result in both.
The download came from a reputable webpage Free Partition Magic alternative. Free Partition Manager Software for Windows 7/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.

It says the the Wizard has stopped working it never opens to show my disks details
The message i get in the details is attached as follows:

Was that a Windows 7 originated message or a MT Solution Mini partition originated message?

Then it also says this:

You'd do better to create a bootable CD rather than install and run Partition Wizard from your hard drive.

With a bootable disc, you can create and edit partitions without hindrance as you'll be booting into Partition Wizard rather than Windows.

Partition Wizard Bootable CD allows user to boot computer directly to manage partition.

Greetings seavixen, thanks for your prompt reply:

I live close to Peterborough Ontario Canada,

Good suggestion, but as im not so savvy with how to create and then use the bootable CD to do as you recommend, could you pls elaborate further?
Do you mean to download the Mini partition Software to a CD first? And then how do I repartition disks on my pc and also those i have on an external enclosure 6 HDD in total? it from there
Could you pls give me some specifics as in Point blank 1...2 3 steps to do what I need to do?


Thank you kindly

Hello MSwhip, I hope things are well in Peterborough, Ontario.

What I'm asking you to do is download the Partition Wizard ISO and burn it to a CD, which you'll then use to boot into the partitioning program itself.

This excellent tutorial explains how to do it.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD

ImgBurn is a great, free ISO image burner.

http://www.imgburn.com/

Once you've booted into the Partition Wizard CD, you'll be able to delete, create, move, resize and merge partitions at will.

Once you have completed your partitioning tasks you'll then close Partition Wizard and boot into Windows as normal. Your new disc layout can then be seen in Windows Explorer and Disk Management.
