I have tried to install this on server 2003, XP and W7.  In every single case, after trying to login (admin/admin) the application resets and cycles over and over again.   Not one machine, but three different computers all with the same outcome.

I have talked with others that get the same exact results.

I THINK THE DOWNLOAD IS CORRUPTED!    I get the same result on a fresh OEM install of XP.  

Please send an email to to receive fix for the above issue.
