ActiveTcl 8.5.8.1 installer hangs on Windows 7

Posted by swwilso1 on 2010-05-19 10:47

When I run the ActiveTcl installer on my Windows 7 box, the installer window has no contents, the console window says downloading 1% and then it never changes after that point. I would appreciate any tips/help.

Thanks,

Steve

Nothing in the ActiveTcl installer has a "downloading" bar. Perhaps it was not successfully downloaded from our site in full? Please try to redownload and install. If this continues, please file a bug with screenshot at http://bugs.activestate.com/.

You have to run the installer as an administrator. Perhaps that requirement was listed somewhere in the documentation, but if so I missed it. Would you be able to add this info?

Thanks,

The need for admin access actually depends on what kind of user setup you have. We'll look at the docs to see if we can clarify this area.
