    I choose "Install" and that's it.

    The application closes (doesn't crash) and leaves me with nothing. Not quite sure why it's doing this though.

    There was a fix for this. I'll see if I can find the link on my PC.

    And I think an old version of the MS vc++ runtimes may also be at fault, like if you have installed visual studio

    I had a problem with .net framework when I grabbed the last catalyst. Installation would fail to start properly.

    Uninstalled all .net framework wossits and catalyst then reinstalled all .net packs then catalyst.

    Took a while but its been fine for several weeks now.

    Yes I had that issue as well, and this Microsoft update fixed it.
