    installation file doesn't open

    This is my first post here on eightforums, so hi everyone!

    I am a new Windows 8 Pro x64 user (new computer, originally installed OS), and have some problem with a game, the League of Legends. I have downloaded an instalation file, but after openning, nothing happened. Computer asked me an administration password, and after typing nothing is happenning.

    I have tried to run it as a XP SP3 file, W7. I have tried to install it as an administrator. I installed Framework 3.5 (on League of Legends forums was written that it can solve problems) via Control Panel - after restarting computer problem still exists.

    I don't have an antivirus program installed, I also tried to run it having Windows Firewall turned off.

    After searching, there are no similar cases on the internet, and people do play that game on Windows 8, that is why I think it is something with my computer settings.

    I would appreciate your help
