    I have the same machine, and the same problem. It's a damned good
    programme, and it s we didn't get it, when our machine is more
    expensive!

    You used to be able to dig through an Install disk or Software Restore
    disk to find the programs separately in a folder. I guess they've found
    a way to prevent people from doing this.

    Why can't you install from the disc?

    Also what version is it? The only copy I've ever had was the Classic
    version.

    When I tried installing it, this was years ago BTW, it wouldn't accept
    the unlock key on the CD jewel case. I got IBM to send me a new CD but
    that one didn't work either.

    I eventually found out that there was something weird about entering the
    unlock key from the keyboard. I think I had to avoid using the keypad
    when entering numbers and it only accepted uppercase. It has been
    awhile so I could be wrong.

    I don't use it anymore as it's Classic only and I found it a little
    buggy.

    It knows what it is supposed to be installed on. It knows.
