This program will work under Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP, I'm not sure how

Download from www.arriscad.com/support
To recreate the error simply unzip to C:\Download (or any other
directory) and try to install it (run setup.exe). the errors are obvious.
I will post a log of the console error messages as soon as I get back to
