Installation manager non-responsive - needs manual intervention

Discussion created by 1-S6310I on Jul 15, 2010



I recently tried to install Solid Works, which seemed to take a long time

as the manager just freezes with the download progress bar and later with the installation

progress bar just displayed but never moving on to the next step until I initiated the

task manager and then magically, I see a pop-up window asking me for further action.


This happened on an XP-running desktop machine.


Thought, I would share this as it seemed to be a bug and might help others that may

face a similar problem.
