I had this problem on my Mac with Safari. It kept telling me to close
all browsers when I already had. In the end I checked Activity Monitor
and found Safari was still running invisibly and had to force quit it.
Then I could install the plugin. So I suggest checking your Task
Manager and making sure there are no browsers lurking in the open

Hi Sarah,
1) That was indeed the problem. I noticed that revWebPlayer.exe was
loaded as well as iexplorer.exe.
I stopped the process on both of them, but iexplorer.exe kept on coming
back. ???
So I stopped iexplorer and quickly started revWebInstaller. It started
and the Start button was enabled.
Clicked it, and it installed successfully.

2) The plugin is FINALLY working in IE8 on my work computer - yahoo!.
This morning I played around with the Firewall by adding exceptions to
the following files:

Now they are working :)

Thanx again,
Mark Stuart
