    It sounds like you might have a problem with your system running out of space for Temp User files or your drive is too full. When are you getting the error?
    When you start the install the first question you are presented with is:
    location to save files:
    And you are given a location:
    C:\Program Files\Jasc Software Inc\Setup Files\Paint Shop Pro 7 ESD

    You can cange this default by using the Change button - this is not where the program is going to install - Just where the istall files will be temporarilly store - try changing this location to something like:
    c:\temp\Jasc
    or something.

    Hope this helps :)
    Merry Christmas to all

    Yes, plese press caps-lock :D

    Have you tried installing the trial ?

    If that works then, chances are you have a bad copy and should get your mate to take it back to the retailer ;)
