I DL'ed both the 32 & 64 bit installers today, and have been trying to install LP onto my Win7 machine. I have Win7 Ultimate, with 5GB of RAM and a quad core AMD processor. 1TB of disk, using NTFS, w/o bitlocker. I have the latest updates for Windows & Office 2010 installed.
The first time I tried to install LP64, it sat there for 45 minutes before I looked at it with the Resource Manager. It said that there was a thread waiting to complete network I/O, so I killed the process. Each time I start up the installer (32 or 64) I see the same thing- it sits there forever, consuming ~25% of my CPU bandwidth on all 4 cores, while waiting to finish some unknown network I/O. I have IE, FireFox, and Chrome on my machine. It finds them all, yet hangs even iff I clear all 3 options and ask it to install anyhow. Figure that one out...
BTW, I have added the process to my firewall approval list to no avail. I have also shut down my A/V and tried again- also no joy. My A/V software is Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent, if it matters.
Please help me before I pull out the rest of my hair, as I really could use this package on numerous devices.
