I've heard good reports of Silkypix and have decided to give it a try. Unfortunately I've not been able to install it - getting the 'The wizard was interrupted before installation was completed' message. I've tried every fix I've found on the net - specifically those relating to 'Impersonate a Client' and Dcom security settings, without success.

What gives with Silkypix - I've never had problems with software installation before?
Ideas, anyone - please?

Have been using Silkypix for over a year now.really like to colours it gives from ORF's and the interface.

I had no trouble with the downloads.Are you running Vista??
One of the reasons when I upgraded my Pc I chose to run Xp is had herd bad things about all the security setting on Vista.

No, I'm running XP. Silkypix is the only program I've ever had problems with installing!

I wouldn't think so - I've got a 'Leaf' router/firewall that uses Linux IPTables. It'll allow connections established from the internal network. No dropped entries appeared in the log when attempting to install Silkypix.

Corrupt installation file?

I've downloaded the file a couple of times. Also the file is available at a two sites and I've tried them both.

At least to get the information Silkypix would need for analysis
