Running Vista. I have no idea what happened. The BOINC InstallShield Wizard comes up, but it has a network logo instead of the BOINC logo in the upper left hand corner. I select "next" for agreement then normal install--no changes. I have tried several times to install the latest version and every time receive a new small BOINC window (with the network logo to the left again) stating:

The feature you are trying to use is on a
network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to
the installation package "Boinc.msi"
in the box below.

When I search computer that file does not exist. All of the Boinc program and Data files are on Program or Programx86 but nothing recent, 2012 is the latest date.

Am now running 6.10.28 since it was the only version still on the computer.

Please see this BOINC FAQ for how to fix that.
