Adobe Illustrator refuses to install

I wish to try out Adobe Illustrator CS3 for a number of reasons, so I headed to the Adobe website to download the free trial. After some tricky problems of locating the file, I manage to extract all included files, leaving me with a folder on the desktop. Contained within is the setup.exe file I need. However, upon clicking the file, a screen pops up, waits for a moment then disappears, with nothing happening.

I am running Windows Vista and have all the right specifications required. I use McAfee as my Firewall (came free with my laptop), and I have tried disabling that for a while in case internet access was needed or whatever, but still nothing.

It'd be great if someone could help me out, I've been trying to sort the problem out for five hours now, and I'm getting annoyed.

Cheers in advance :whistling:

OK, since no-on can help me with the problem, is there an alternative program that I can create business cards with?

are you trying to create a graphic for the business card or just a general card? Last time I did a business card, I used microsoft publisher. A friend designed the graphic (a small jpeg). Publisher had no problems using the file.
