After I ordered the items the other day, I received an email saying I could download the demo version to try it out until the CDs arrived. I did that, so you should keep in mind that I have that demo version still hanging around on the computer (I didn't think that would be a problem, plus I couldn't figure out how I could remove the program if I wanted to).
I took out the new CDs today and placed the main Scholar's Collection CD into the computer. I click on that collection to be installed, gave the proper code, and it began to do its thing. However, once it got to "809 files remaining", it began to deathly crawl. About 3 minutes passed until it got to 808, same thing with 807, about 7 minutes to get to 806, and it stayed there for well over 20 minutes. I did cancel at this point because I figured something was up. After rebooting, I tried it again, and the exact same thing happened, but this time I let it keep going. After another huge wait, it finally got down to somewhere in the 790s or lower before things started to pick up again. Once it got to 0 files remaining, it had a long pause for several minutes again, and final gave me some prompts to register. It may be of concern to say that during the installation process, my computer would say the installation program was not responding, even though it was still doing some work, be it agonizingly slow.
I tried sticking in one of the other CDs, assuming they have the modules on them. It got stuck too with 700-some files remaining. I got tired after another 20 minute wait with no apparent progress and decided to type this post for some help. I've tried opening Accordance too, and now it doesn't even bring up the demo version.
My MacBook is less than a month old and is a 10.4.1, so it is up to speed. Do I need to remove everything Accordance related from my computer and start again? If so, how do I do that? (This is my first Mac, and I'm not finding a simple solution to uninstall Accordance). I am really looking forward to using this product, but it has become extremely frustrating having spents hours of my day trying to fix this and I'm in a worse place than where I started. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Edited to add: I haven't had any issues with the installation of other programs on this computer.
