It worked when i restarted the computer and right clicked on setup.exe then selected "open". But as i was following the steps on the screen, i only got to the point where i had to select a connection (how the printer is connected to the computer - usb, parallel...) then it stopped responding. How do i get past this point?

Go to this directory (or the equivalent) and delete the .SHD and .SPL files.

This corrected the issue for me in the past.

3.5 year old topic so I hope they have resolved their issue before now.
