G'day all,After a frustrating day/night I finally have a solution.As there were no questions or solutions on this Forum I thought I would drop the answer here to save someone else the frustration.
I had created a Virtual PC (VPC) with Windows XP SP2.I went to install Zone Alarm Security Suite (ZASS) 7 on it - problem - each time I tried it would just disappear almost immediately after there was a little bit of disk and inet activity. Nothing in the processes left that I could tell.I also tried with the ZA Free version thinking it might have been my file, also tried with an older version (as I am having trouble with the AntiVirus part of ZASS not connecting to get updates) - thought it might have been this version with trouble.
Searching with Google found no similar example. Here on this forum was nothing either.Indications were that others were using VPC with ZA, they had other issues.
Other programs were installing ok, so I tried lets of ideas.I tried installing as the Administrator (Right click and "Run As". - no go(I didn't try logging in as Administrator - wonder why I didn't try that?)
Finally found a solution.I tried installing with run as (Right click and "Run As",then chose Current user (had tried this earlier)BUTUNTICKED the tick box under it"Protect my computer and data from unauthorised program activity"
Success - it finally installed.
Hope one day this might save someone else some time.
I am pretty much a newbie with Virtual PC - so please forgive me from something which might have been completely obvious to everyone else - LOL
