    I have a old hp computer with windows vista installed(32 bit)
    Sometimes when i try to install some programs, but not always, I click on the installation file and the arrow shows the loading for a bit, but then the computer doesn't do nothing and it doesn't show any window to install the program.
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks in advance:)

    is there a UAC lasing icon in the taskbar? It's supposed to come to the front but it doesn't always under Vista

    Try packing it in a .7z and open it in 7zip (it sounds like nonsense but it worked for me on vista)
