Act 8.0 won't install fully on XP SP2

It seems Act won't install fully on 2 of our new Acer PC's. The installation somehow "hangs" while copying the last bits and pieces of the files. About 0.5 centimeters from the end of the bar. The message says "copying new files". I have tried downloading and installing Windows Installer 3.2, but that did not help. Never seen this before, so I'm wondering what I could do to solve it.


Anybody who knows how to solve it? I've also waited and waited to see if it might go on installing after a longer moment ( but even three hours later it still was not doing anything). In the back of my mind i think it has something to do with the installshield program ( Idriver.exe?)
