install hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to the forum and if I commit any faux paus please accept my apologies. I must admit I believe I got ahead of myself in an install and that has caused my issue. That being what it is, does anyone know how to stop an install that is hung up and will not allow any other install to proceed? I started installing Microsoft Office XP Developer. The install hangs at a point. No errors, it just does not proceed. If I try to go to another disk to try to install that other portion, the system tells me the other setup must be completed before the next setup can proceed. The only thing is the first setup will not complete. I have tried to go to a restore point and my computer says it cannot go to the restore points I have selected, as far back as three weeks and it will not restore to any of the points. The computer seems to be working fine except that the Office Developer setup will not complete and not other setup can start until it does.
    I am running Windows XP that is completely up to date (except for the developer thing)

  • I think I got the XP developer installed.  I can find it and call up the various parts of it. However, I now have another question that I will pose in a new post.  Consider this one answered for now.
