Although this worked, I'm curious why. I wouldn't think a firewall & AV would interfere with installation - I've never had it happen before. If it helps, here's the configuration of both laptops:
Windows Vista SP1, Microsoft Firewall, Eset NOD32 v4
Windows XP SP3, Microsoft Firelwall, Eset NOD32 v3 (haven't had a chance to upgrade this yet)
I disabled both firewall & antivirus so I don't know if it was one or a combination of both that was causing the problem.
Anyone have any ideas why firewall & AV would interfere with installation of AmiKit integrated into Amiga Forever 2009 Premium?
