    Yes,I have tried compatibility mode. The programs install on other XP systems both Home and Pro. The only real difference in the systems are the hard drive sizes. One is 60mb the other with the problem is 120mb

    Did you have to use Application Compatibility Mode on the PC it is working on?

    Is the user ID used a Limited account?

    As hard drive size different should not be a problem.

    Can you list some of the application names having the problem?

    PC Miler is version 14 and installs just fine on my other XP system. That fix is for other that admin users.
    Pagis Pro ME install fine on my other XP system
    Everything installs fine on my other XP system
    today, i cannot install the Fujitsu Scanpartner CD. It does yet the same thing. Hourglass, then nothing.

    I am at a loss here of what the problem could be. I am no amature either. I have been a consultant for 18 years and am (was) an NT MCP
