Error when installing trial version of Photo Explorer 8.5

Post by nologo »

I downloaded the trial version of Photo Explorer 8.5 and am trying to install it on my Windows XP computer by running the executable pex85trial_eng.exe. The splash page appears, Then I get a InstallShield Wizard Window that says it is Preparing Setup. Once the progress bar completes I get an error that says:

Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5 Setup
Ulead Photo Explorer 8.5 is currently running in the backgroud. Please close it first and try again.

I have tried rebooting then starting the process again, but get the same results. I have looked in Task Manager and found and ended the process pex85tial_eng.exe but this just ends the install process itself.
