SAS 9.2 Installation

Has anyone had trouble installing SAS 9.2? I have XP Pro with 32 bit. I checked to make sure that SAS 9.2 is compatible with my system and it all checked out. However, when I try to install the software I get an error when the wizard tries to install SAS Foundation. I also tried it on my friend's computer that is using Windows 7 with 32 bit and I got the exact same error message.

This is legal software.  I'm taking a SAS course starting on Monday and the SAS technical support isn't open on the weekends, so I'm working with a short time line here.  Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Please see attached error message.

Thanks for all the comments on this post.  According to SAS, the problem is actually with a bad copy of the DVD, so they are sending me another copy.

Yes, I removed what had been installed and then restarted my computer and tried to reinstall two times. The installation package is 4 DVDs!

And yes, I also clicked re-try before doing the above. I also tried to do the install anyway, but that didn't work either.

Some obvious questions:
1. Do you have admin rights on the PC to install software?
2. Do you have enough disk space to install the software?
3. Did you turnoff all anti-virus software before installing?  This will/has caused issues for me.

Not the first time that has happened with SAS software.

Good luck on the second install.

The SAS installation DVD was damaged so I could not install it. I contacted SAS and they sent me another DVD and it installed fine.
