Windows 7: Macrium won't run/install

Macrium won't run/install

This is in relation to my other problem posted at Not responding - now can't open Outlook, check disk. I downloaded Macrium to an external hard drive but it appears to not install properly. No menu pops up, and nothing else happens as far as I can tell. It looks like "cancel" pops up at the end, but it is very fast, so I'm not sure.

I am trying to create an image of my hard drive so that I can restore it if my laptop hard drive is bad. I also downloaded Rescue.iso to the same drive, and that opens fine.

My other question is: Can I keep my backup files on this external hard drive and still use it to create the image?

All help is welcome, as this is my work computer, and I've lost five days already.

According to Macrium, v5 - Troubleshooting installer issues (Installer, v5), a log should identify the error. When I check the "Log" box, no log is created.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,

Macrium Install Option to include WinPE: needed?
A newbie type question: I'd like to try Macrium free. The install process provides the options to include or exclude WinPE. I'd rather not include it if it's not needed. What are the pros and cons to excluding it? I'm running Win7x64. IIUC, WinPE is a sorta compact version of Windows,...

Trying to be mindful of backups I installed Macrium Free and created a USB boot drive. However, it took about six tries to get that made. When I went to reboot, the message was: insert the proper media and reboot. It took about a dozen times for the USB drive to be accepted as the boot drive. ...
