Yes, that is similar. However, when I try the solution stated (disabling my firewall) I then simiply get the installation process stopping at 1% and the message "intallation failed" with no error code.
It's really strange because I had absolutely no problem installing the program on my prior laptop with the exact same firewall - i.e. McAfee. Could it be that this Dell laptop has some added sercuity feature that's blocking the download and install?
