Installing 6.6.1 Community on Windows 8

Once I remembered what the igor had said, I ran it without any special admin privileges and “only me", so the working installing was that way.

When I was having problems (any user), I tried both admin and not.

The problem applied both to downloaded installers in the downloads folder and an installer copied from a network drive to the desktop.

This is on parallels and the virtual machine file is on an external drive, but I wouldn’t think Windows or the installer would notice.

I still haven’t beat Windows 8 into submission, uh, I mean, I haven’t learned my way around Windows 8, so I might be doing something goofy.
