ActivePerl 5.24.0 Build 2400 Setup installer freezes when the Install button is pressed

Hi - this doesn't seem right - I've selected Typical Install, clicked on the 'Install' button and the dialog freezes - surely I should get some kind of progress bar?

The exe installer will check if there is a newer version available. This can hang if you don't have internet access. Try running the installer from the command line in a Command Prompt Window started with "Run as Administrator", and use the option /exenoupdates or specify /username (for the proxy server) and /password (for the proxy server)
