I am installing RAD 7.5.3 . During installation I am selecting WebSphere 6.1 and Websphere 7.0 test server installations. The installation proceeds for approximately 60 to 90 minutes and progress bas shows some progress during this period. After 60-90 minutes, the installation stucks in between and does not proceed further. It does not throw and error, but the installation is also not proceeding. I waited for 5-6 hours already. During this period, the system is idle and no process takes more than 1% of the CPU. I am using HP laptop for the installation. Could you please tell me what can I do now?
Please find the attached screenshot attached herewith.

Do you have complete rights to the machine. You need to be an admin to be able to install RAD 7.5. I had similar issues and I had to login as admin to complete installation.

Even after that if you are logging into a different user which does not have admin rights you would need to give complete rights to the C:\Program Files\IBM folder, make sure you click on the advanced tab and get the child folder to inherit this permissions.

Hope this helps.
