Desktop Software won't install

The disc gives a message of 'Initializing' along with a status bar, but the software never opens.  Is there any help out there?

What operating system are you running on your computer?

I have the same problem. "Initializing" bar appears and nothing else happens. I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Latitude, model D630.

Re: Desktop Software won't install

Do you have sufficient permissions to install software?  If it is a company laptop, this is often locked out.


You can try bypassing the splash screens - don't have the CD autorun (Hold your shift key down when inserting the CD and keep it pressed for about 5-10 sec until the CD drive quiets down), then explore the CD and go to D:\files\exec\bbinstaller and run the Setup.exe from there.
