    Essential PIM installation problem


    Is anyone familiar with this program Essential PIM ? It is awesome and works great from usb drive version.
    When I try to install the desktop version tho, it seems to install ok. Then it says to click the screen or File & New
    but nothing happens.
    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Hi pcRat,

    I was just getting ready to restore a System Image to clean-up some of my testing so I thought "Why not one more before I wipe the slate clean again?" Anyway, I was able to get it to download and install. FYI, I am running Windows 8.1 x64 but it installed as x32. See screenshots below for more information:

    First I unblocked the exe file (thanks David Bailey):

    Then I right-click the executable and selected "Run as Admin."

    Installation started and successfully completed.

    Hope this information was helpful. Good luck.

    Thanks 2cents but ... I don't get option to unblock.
    I did run as Administrator
    Then I still ended up with my original result.

    On my the portable version on my usb drive, it installed just like yours in final window.

    I've downloaded ,installed ,uninstalled ,deleted then downloadand reinstall this program at least 10 times.

    Interesting? Try downloading the executable again, then right-click it, and see if the unblock is there? Use this link please and see picture below:

    Get EPIM

    FYI, I downloaded the free version again and....

    One thing I noticed about the download is that it pauses for a very long time at the 1 second left mark; however, it eventually does finish.

    Thank you 2cents for your help.
    I don't know why I never got the option to unblock. Wasn't the problem anyway.
    In my previous attempts, under the View tab the only option was Status Bar.
    Now there is a 'Navigation Pane' option. Checkmarking it made everything appear.
    Thank you again.
