Let's wait and see if the techies have a solution to your issue.

If after following suggestions it still proves to be a problem, you can always get the game here as a download and it has been tweaked to be compatible with Windows 10. The download also includes the two expansions.

Sounds like the installer is running in the background. Try opening up your Task Manager - CTRL/ALT/DEL and checking in the processes to see if it's listed. It may even be listed by the name of the game or it many say uninstall shield. If it is listed, click on "End Task."

I found something about user rights. Try right clicking file and selecting Run As Administrator.

I'm not a techie but when I have a problem I always restart my computer to see if that helps.

oldbroad, that usually solves 95% of problems!

johnnycage, here is a more complete list of things to look for in the Task Manager.
