Application will not install

I have a machine that I just setup with Windows 7 Enterprise and everything is working fine on it except one thing. We have an application called Matrix that I am trying to install and it is not working.  I browse to this installation folder and double click on setup.exe as I have many times and the setup program appears to fire off, but the setup window never displays on screen.  When I open task manager I see that setup.exe is running, but again there is nothing on screen for me to make the installation run.  What could be wrong?  This makes absolutely no sense.  I can go to another machine and this setup runs just fine.  Also I am able to install any other application on this machine.  Please help!

right click on it, "run as administrator". if that fails, boot up in safe mode and retry.

Booting in safe mode with networking did the trick!  Thanks for your help!

Do you have to change the compatibility of the application.  Try right-clicking the application

Go to Properties  -----> Compatibility -----> Compatibility mode ------> Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for : <Try different options for testing>  Click "Apply"

Retest...
