Several months ago I installed Ver 2.0 on my desktop with much difficulty. First, the program would open and immediately close after momentarily displaying the splash screen. I followed the posting advice and changed the settings in Ctrl Pnl>System>Performance>Settings>Data Execution Protection, turning on DEP for all programs except for PSI.exe and the PSI tray, too. I also had a problem with the icon disappearing from the system tray and fixed that, but I don't remember the steps. Ver 2.0 installed and worked fine.
Today, I tried to install Ver 2.0 on my laptop to no avail. I initially had the same problem on my laptop (both computers are Dells (laptop XPS M140) running MS SP Pro SP3. I followed all the suggestions mentioned before without success. Since the previous version had worked well, I tried to re-install that one, but this time I could not get that version (which gave me no trouble prior) to install.
Unless I get some help, I will be forced to uninstall Secunia PSI and rely on the OSI version.
I am disappointed with this roll-out of a new version. There are still a great many computers running XP and people who have been unimpressed with Vista and Win7. Neither of my computers have been modified, except for larger hard drives. Since Secunia knows about both the software and hardware on these machines, I wonder how many XP machines they have lost in the past few months.

|Hi try either of these two suggestions from the updated FAQ.
1) Go to where you installed the PSI (Probably C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI, or C:\Program Files (x86) for 64-bit systems), right-click PSI.exe, click Properties, go to the Compatibility tab, and set a check at 'Turn off advanced text services for this program'
If that did not resolve the issue, then you can try
2) Go to Control Panel > Regional and language options > Languages Tab > Details > Advanced. From here, set a check at 'Turn off advanced text services' (Please note that this is a global setting unlike what is described in step 2).
