  • Hi,

    Try this:

    • Make sure you have administrative privileges on the PC you're installing to. Or atleast the account you're using.
    • Go on Computer > right-click the drive with the DVD and click on Open
    • Open Setup.exe or try to see if you can manually open setup.hta

    Hope this helps.
