Do you have any security programs installed? Anti-virus/Firewall/Sandbox? Make sure those program are not blocking the installer

 

Is there any error message? Are you sure it really stucks, it could take a few minutes to extract the files

Can you try the Mini-Web installation option to see if that one works?

I was just reading that there is a bug in the tools i used to create the installer, a resouce (GDI objects) leak that breaks the installer after a runtime of about 50minutes. I never noticed that since my connection is fast and the download takes only 10-15min. How long does it take for you to download the files for the full installation? You could try to uncheck the "install cd2" box and the download should only take half the time, maybe that is going to fix the problem

 

Adding singleplayer to the mini install would be an option too

 

Edit:

Here is how you can do a full install using the freeware files directly:

1. Download both cds via your browser:

(EU Server) http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/freeware/RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar

(EU Server) http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/freeware/RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar

Or:

(US Server) ftp://ftp.cncnet.org/redalert/RedAlert1_AlliedDisc.rar

(US Server) ftp://ftp.cncnet.org/redalert/RedAlert1_SovietDisc.rar

2. Start RA1installer and choose Full CD-Install

3. In the next menu select the folder where you downloaded the 2 .rar files and hit ok

 

Let me know if it worked!
