    The starter edition installer fails for me using Windows XP. The welcome screen pops up, then some disk activity occurs and nothing happens after that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    The system requirements currently list Windows 7 as the minimum.

    This likely has to do with .Net 4.5 not being supported on Windows XP.

    Thanks for the reply. I received a response from support with links to new versions of the installers. The new versions worked for me.

    Please try doing a fresh install with the latest versions:
