I am trying to install Norton Antivirus 2005 on a Powerbook G4 with VP 7 and XP Professional.  WHen I click on install nothing happens like it can't read the CD.  I have checked the CD on my desktop PC and it is OK.  Is there a compatabiltiy issue with Symantec on VP 7?

    Accepted Solution

    Maybe it's an hybrid cd and VP7 get's confused.
    I would copy the antivirus installer files to a folder on a pc and either burn them again on another cd or copy them to the VP7 environment via the network.

    Also, make sure that you select the CD in the lower menu of VP7 and assign the CD to it. That also fixes a lot of issues with VP7 seeing cd's.
