I've seen similar problems after installing new software that integrated with other software (such as Paperport). I uninstalled the new software, ran a registry cleaner, and reinstalled. Try that first.
If you need a freeware registry cleaner, I recommend Easy Cleaner by ToniArts. You can download it here.
** Always use care when editing the registry. Be sure to back up the registry or set a system restore point before making any changes.
If that doesn't help, look at this Microsoft article 290301 for information on a Windows utilty that removes installer information.
After running the utility, reinstall the trouble software.
Hope this helps.

So basically, the installer box never really goes anywhere and never prompts for a CD to be inserted?
