Hi. I haven't played Freespace (2) before and was really looking forward to it. I have been using the installer to get bits and pieces of the game over a few nights on my laptop. I'm up to the last piece that I wanted (Advanced media VPS and FS Port), but the installer doesn't work any more.
What I have been doing: It starts up okay, Click next, next, uncheck yes to all, click next. At this point, it freezes. The screen where you check the packages you want stays completely greyed out. I tried it with both the JAR and exe versions of the installer (Windows may have updated. I wasn't really paying attention). The only thing I can think of that's changed on my system is that I have rebooted it, which I didn't do between the other installs.
I also tried just leaving it for a while, to see if it was still working, but it stayed the same for a number of hours.
I may just try and finish the installation off on another computer later tonight.
edit: Using Windows XP with all updates. Virus scanner is McAfee, but I turned it off to make sure.
edit2: Also happens on my Vista computer.
