Cannot install programs on win 2003 standard serve

  TomG 19:43 08 Sep 2008

Just upgraded my server to 2003 (full version not a trial or restricted edition). All has gone well but I'm having trouble installing programs.

Two examples are pcanyware (11.5) and AVG file server edition (7.5).

AVG gets as far as asking what version you want installing, there is a pop up window that appears for about half a second (don't know what it says as there isn't time to read it) and then nothing happens.

PCanywhere starts installation then rolls back saying that setup was interuppted.

I've enabled active content from cds and tried turning off the web Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration (first off completely then just off for the administrator group) but this just stopped ie browsing all together, just in case this was the issue.

Has anyone got any ideas how to overcome this?
