Are there any error messages reported during installation?
Do you have the folder "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Earth\client" installed?
No folder like this. I have tried to load Google Earth at least 4 times and never gets to the run stage or reports an error. I am beginning to think this software is not compatible with my W7 system. A year or so ago, I had it running on this machine. Been using it longer than I can remember and now it won't load.
