I've downloaded the starter pack as well as the sword software alone, 
and neither will do anything when I try to start the install.

I right-clicked and I see "Run As" with "protect..." checked.  Does 
anyone know why it's showing up this way?  I just installed a ton of 
other third-party software on this for a client (I use Linux myself) and 
I had never seen this before.  I've had Windows XP Pro myself for about 
nine months, but rarely use it.

I was finally able to run it by right-clicking and selecting "Open". 
The standard double-click or Run menu item doesn't seem to work on XP...

Once installed it works fine.  Strange...
