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  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).
