    Have you tried installing with administrator rights on your system by right clicking the exe and using Run as administrator option? If it doesn't help I would suggest running the install with the logging option so you can create a log file to send to us to debug this issue.


    SpWin1.exe /l* c:\temp\log.log

    In addition to what Reeva stated, I would like to tell you that Spread v1.0 is not tested against Windows 7 as it is a very old product released around 10 years back. So it may and may not work with Windows 7. I would suggest you to upgrade to our latest version  of Spread for Windows i.e. Spread 5 which works absolutely fine with Windows 7 both 64 and 32 bit and has got very advances features like Charts.
