If you are installing under the Windows Vista OS you will need to do so under the administrator user name or under a user with administrative privileges [sometimes this option does not work].

1. Not being able to bring up the Controller application.
2. Having all services listed as not installed.

You will need to run the WDController application by right clicking it and selecting 'Run as Administrator.'

Here is one way to disable UAC...
