    pc cd-rom installation error - windows 10 Home v20H2


    Hello all,

    New here and in need of help please!

    Trying to install a pc cd-rom (craft) and have been up against all sorts of problems, without writing and essay I have attached a screen shot of where I am now. At this point I am in administrator, and trying to install it in recommended compatibility mode (Vista SP2) and it gets stuck here all the time, my antivirus and firewall is on (I have tried it with them off) .

    Any help will be very much appreciated. I am quite computer savvy if I am walked through it :)

    You should change the title of this to the Program name install problem instead of what you have now. From the title, I thought you were having a problem installing a CD drive.

    How old is the Papercraft Factory program? Some of the searches of the 'net suggest the age is the issue and it simply won't run on Win10, I have a couple programs I would like to use but can't. Win10 x64/64-bit can run a lot of 32-bit programs but not the older 16-bit versions, the x86/32-bit version of Win10 can do better.

    Note: @fireberd is correct, precision is important, I also thought it was about hardware.

    My apologies to you both, wasn't sure where to put this.

    Have attached a copy of the back of the cd.

    So trying to run it in compatibility mode with the various suggested OS on the back of the cd case won't help either?



    regards

    Also keep in mind that many program installations use a "phone home" process to finish a setup, if a company is gone it can't do that. I also noted the Adobe mention in the image posted, suggests some type of interaction between the two programs that can't be accomplished.

    Yes it seems to be stuck around Adobe Air ......

    I've not had a use for Adobe Air and usually uninstall it.

    see if you can find setup log files and share them here, these contain an explanation on what went wrong.

    You can find them probably in appdata folder or some place where the installer copies data, ex. ProgramData or ProgramFiles.

    Some older programs just won't install, even in a compatibility mode.

    I have that problem, now. I wanted to install Microsoft Digital Image Pro 10 (photo editor program) but it gets hung up as it wants or wants to install Internet Explorer 6. I haven't found any way around that.

    If you have a source for an older OS, such as installation CDs, you could always dual boot with the older OS, or run it in a virtual machine hosted by your Windows 10.
