Default Vent won't install with windows 8

I downloaded Ventrilo 3.0.8 to my computer. When asked to install or save (I have tried both) I choose install. HD light blinks like something is going on, but nothing happens. I have tried this from the Start screen and the desktop with the same results. I have Norton 360 installed, I have tried it with norton disabled. Any suggestion?

Mine won't install on Win8.1 either in compatibility mode or as admin. Anyone have any ideas?

@ rkram

do you get any errors when trying to install?

typically this problem is caused by these prevention type apps: firewall/antivirus/spyware/malware

can you post a pic of the windows taskmanager/processes tab (including 'all users')

@shaggy3243

when you hit agree it will open a popup window to start the download. there is something that is preventing the windows from opening. some options to check for:

browser pop-up blocking
browser add-in/plug-in
browser security setting (allow ventrilo.com)
firewall/antivirus/spyware/malware app setting (allow ventrilo.com)

try using a different browser
