Installation Issue

I've been trying to install a program (cutewriter) which I've used before but hadn't yet re-installed since my last format The problem is that, just after the 3rd screen it switches to installing another of my programs - evillyrics!

Any ideas on this odd behaviour?

Run a registry cleaner, such as the one from click here and then download cutewriter again and see if the fresh download works.

Thanks Diodorus.

I've discovered that the problem was caused by both installation programs' residence in the folder where I keep all my installation files. This is the first time I've seen a clash like this.

I found the solution a few moments ago when I copied the cutewriter installation file to the desktop where it installed normally.

I'm going to get that cleaner anyway.

Thanks for the feedback; that makes sense, especially when installation logs are being created.
