Welcome to the forums, :)

How long have you waited before cancelling the installation? The recent Corel programs take an awful long time to install. Does your harddrive show any activity while the install appears to be stuck? There may be something going on in the background that is taking a long time. Do you get a Not Responding Error? Have you opened the task manager and checked to see if it is running or Not-Responding? If you're not getting the Not Responding error, then it is still working on installing.

Is your Windows XP up to date with all service packs? Some of Corel's programs require certain versions of MicroSoft's .NET framework be installed. If you don't have it, then the program will install it, which can take quite a while. Have you recently manually updated your DirectX drivers? This is not part of MicroSoft's automated windows update service. You need to go to Microsoft's website, download, unpack and install it.

Did you purchase this directly from Corel? You stated you just purchased it, is that within the last 30 days? Are you located in the U.S.? If so they have a 30-day money back guarantee. If so, I would ask for a refund, and get something that will not cause you to pull your hair out, smack your head against the desk, and throw your computer out the window. :lol: :lol: Corel Digital Studio and all the programs attached to it, are garbage!! Corel dropped the ball when they released these. You will not find any of us "old-timers" having anything to do with them.

Installation

At just over a gigabyte, Corel Digital Studio 2010 is not a program to install lightly. Although it will run indiscriminately on XP, Vista and Windows 7 machines, Corel recommends a 2GHz processor or higher, 4GB of free hard-drive space, plus 2GB of RAM, and 256MB of VGA VRAM (the video card). You can get by with half of both RAM counts, according to Corel's specifications, but the dual-core processor is key. The suite will still install on lesser machines, but you may not be able to access all the video tools as a result. Installation took between 10 and 15 minutes on each computer — we tested on a Vista desktop and on a high-powered Vista laptop with a 32-bit, 2.33GHz Intel Centrino Duo processor and 3GB of RAM. In addition to the four main applications, Corel comes with a desktop gadget that includes quick-link icons to easily switch among the apps.

If you're running Corel Digital Studio 2010 on Windows 7, you'll notice that the suite takes advantage of Windows 7 optimisations, like jump lists, and libraries that group together related content across the system. The suite is compatible with Windows Touch computers.
