Installation hangs at "Checking for Internet Connection"

Discussion created by Ryan Doving on Nov 7, 2008
I just received the disc for SolidWorks 2009. I already have 2008 installed and want to upgrade. I inserted the Windows XP 32 bit DVD and proceeded with installation, but the process hangs at "Connecting to SolidWorks - Checking For Internet Connection". The progress bar keeps moving but it sits there for an hour or more doing nothing.

I had the same problem when trying to upgrade SolidWorks 2008 to the latest service pack via the in-program update manager. Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts on how to fix it?
