I've been using ARC 500 on an older laptop that originally had Windows 8 on it and I updated this spring to Windows 10. I've been able to use it without any problems. I just got a new laptop and I'm having trouble installing ARC 500 on the new machine. In both cases I used a CD with the software on it to install the software on both laptops...

Any ideas?

What are the messages? At what step is the installation failing? What did you do differently, if anything, during the installation?

Too many obvious questions, not enough details...MIke

The new computer didn't even download the CD properly. There were no error messages, just not loading the program correctly.

Just download a new copy of the software from Butel right to your computer and install it from there:

When you try to install, right click on the .exe file and choose "Run as Administrator" with a normal left click.
