Windows 7 - works suite won't load

Asked By johnalangm on 15-Sep-07 12:52 PM
I recently purchased a new copy of Works Suite 2006, (I know it's new because
I broke the plastic wrapper. It has the license on the back of the case.) I
had to wipe my hard drive and re-install Windows Pro. for an un-related
problem. All my other programs re-loaded fine. Works Suite 2006 refuses to do
anything except make the green light on my cd unit glow. The person I bought
it from says it sounds like I'm missing some drivers or software. I tried to
correct this with a re-install of Windows but it didn't help. Anybody have
any ideas what's wrong?
Thanks Johnalangmi

Can you read the files on the WORDS CD?

Is it an upgrade CD or in a different language that your
operating system?

Have you opened the CD in your Windows Explorer and then
directly clicked the "install" program or are you depending
on an auto-run setting?

Are you trying to read a DVD in CD-ROM drive?

The c.d. is a new Works Suite 2006, all printing is in English so I must
assume it is an English version. I have tried both ways to install the
program, it stalls before it shows any screens and I can't see any files.
