I tried to install Scientific Word using my CD. But I cannot.
A pop up saying "The installation is preparing to overwrite your existing installation. This should only take a minute or two". But after 1 hour passed, nothing was done. It stopped. So I reran the cd. The same occurred.

My pc is toshiba window 8.

The only install failure I

The only install failure I know about after the installation actually begins running is described at http://www.mackichan.com/techtalk/345.htm.  What you are seeing seems different, but it's not clear at what point the install is failing.  You can try running the setup.exe for Scientific Word directly from the setup_sw subdirectory on the CD, or download the trial version and use it to try installing (using your serial number).
