    Why does EPDM 2015 crash my computer on install attempt

    Phil Johnston

      So I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. I have Solidworks 2014 installed on this machine. We just purchased EPDM 2015 and when I put the CD in my computer, it asks if I want to autorun. I check yes and it crashes my computer. Crashes it hard, meaning it won't even let me CTRL AL DEL and kill it.

       

      A large, empty white box appears and the spiraling "busy" symbol appears...and stays there indefinitely. I've tried 4 different times now. Each time, I literally had to do a hard restart (Hold down the power button until the PC turns off).

       

      Any ideas?

       

      As I'm typing this, I realized I never tried turning off Comodo Internet Security and Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials (Sometimes install issues can be solved by unlocking everything and opening the doors to the wolves...).

       

      Could this be it?
