Failed installation for plastics. Suggests calling customer service, but educational

The compatibility test found a file to disable, which I did. Then amidst install, changed disk and errors encountered. Program produced zip file and recommended I call tech support. Support apparently not available for student users. Any way to get help completing installation?

Problem resolved...

Troubleshooting page suggests Inspecting disk-- I removed what seemed to be a plastic "hair" from manufacture;

used reinstall ---> repair from installation manager (similar problems from same disk; used classmate disk)

reinstalled individual modules, one being the activation, other being the module on which original installation stalled.

Thanks for the help, folks!
