Is this occurring with just one program, or many programs?
Can you give an example: from what website did you download what file to install?
Using win98se and having problems installing programs. Get a prompt "initializing setup" then a flash of installation screen for the program I am trying to install following the download from a website, then tossed back to the folder where I put the downloaded file I am trying to install. Is there a temp folder I need to clean out or a newer version of some installshield wizardry I need on this machine?
