I downloaded the trial version of After Effects to a flash drive and, began to install it on my other computer. Got as far as a prompt asking me to insert Drive i, (the flash), to continue installation. Except, the drive was already there, still plugged into its USB port. The file that install presumably wanted was on that drive, and the drive was inserted....
So, what am I doing wrong, guys?
You cannot install from Flash drives, it's as simple as that. The installer packages always must be copied to a proper local harddrive. The installer cannot cope with removable media and eventually loses track of some files during install.
Okay, thanks for that, Mylenium.
Live and learn, huh?
