Hi there,

I hope that someone could help out -

I have a problem with Windows Installer - when installing, the
installer seems to hang, and after 5 to 10 minutes of wait, the
installation finally starts and continues "normally", like on other
"regular" machines.

Actually, the post below describes the *exact* 2 problems that I have
on my machine. One of the is related to the Windows Installer - if
anyone can help out with either problems - that could be great.

Thanks in advance !

It might be that the installer is looking for a mapped network drive
that is unavailable?

I don't think so (in fact, someone in a different forum has already
suggested this) - I've logged the installation and it doesn't look
like there's an entry to a mapped drive. More over, I think I've
already tried to unplug the network cable in order to check this -
didn't work.

Problem solved.

My user account was defined in an old domain which is probably not
trusted. A newly created account in a "more common" domain solved the
problem.
