I have just bought a new Laptop with W8.1, I am installing a CD I bought with LS5, this has taken 4 hours and appears stuck at 5% on "The program features you selected are being installed".
There are no error messages, CD is silent, CPU running 60-100%, no network activity worth mentioning.... Is this normal?
Also, can I just get LS5 from the net and use the serial # on the package I got (in case this is a crap CD)
OK, maybe I was impatient? After 5,5 hours it suddenly completed, no update to the 5%, just told me to restart.
Seems to be working, though it failed to create an Icon. You can find the EXE under Windows/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.
