Hello again,


Did you use the program WinRAR for extracting ? First make sure to disable any anti-virus programs you have. Also make an EMPTY folder somewhere on your C: drive. And then use WinRAR to re-extract, into that folder on C:

After the re-extraction, go to that folder and re-start the installation from there.

Things like that can happen if you don't use WinRAR, or if you are trying to install from an external source (USB flashdrive, etc.).



Good luck for now !
