Hey there. Problem fixed. Turns out there was a dash that was hiding
in there, all set now though, sweeeet.

OK, so another error pops up and it keeps telling me it can't find the
path specified. I'm excepting the default of where it wants to
install the program.
It wans to go in program files (x86) and then a directory off that.
This makes absolutely no sense. The program i am trying to install is
mp3 direct cut. Any ideas what i should do here?

For some reason it keeps saying make sure there are no characters such
as \ / etc. That sounds strange

What is the path and the folder name it wants to create?

error i get.

couldn't create directory dialog
could not create the target directory, access is denied be sure it
