Windows 7: 2010 BETA won't install

2010 BETA won't install

Downloaded the 2010 BETA and went to install it. Clicked on the install and a screen came up that it was unpacking. Watched the little bar move and then...Blink...it's gone. Nothing happens. I figured it unzipped and I had to find the setup. Nothing! No events registered, no errors, nothing. It disappears. Any ideas?

Did you try Right Click, Run as Administrator? Not just using administator account.

Shut down firewall and anti virus during install. This time it worked.
