Greetings. I've been referred here by bc-central.com in hopes of fixing my problem. I dug out my old BC disc, popped it in and tried to install, and the demoshield pre-installation thing gets to 100% then just disappears. I know it is not my disc since I tried it off the disc and off the hard drive. I believe it is something to do with the w32 installer thing since it left a log in my windows folder. I've even tried running the installation in compatability mode under 95 98 and 2000. Nothing i've tried has worked. Can someone please give me a fix to my problem. And if I repeated a threat, my appologies.

I've already done and tried all that. I don't know what more I can do.

I just tried it again, let it sit for 15 minutes and nothing happened. I'm at a loss.

Maybe I need to let it sit even longer?

Let it sit there overnight. It will work, eventually. Your registry needs some cleaning, it worked for me.
