    As far as I understand if you have RTW installed into the /program files folder in Vista it tries to protect the contents. The EoDII installation process includes copying some existing BI files into the eod2 folder then copying some newer stuff over them.... suspect that point could be causing trouble and stalling the installer before you get to the shortcut

    There's a thread here
    about turning the UAC control off which stops it trying to send things into
    C:\Users\your.username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files
    instead of the main folder location.... could you have a look in that location and see if any bits of eod2 have ended up there?

    Couple of things you can try, look into..
