Hi Debasis,

    There are lots of people who are using the same software package in 
the USA with no problems. I suggest you try downloading just the first 
of the CD-Rom 5 disk set and see if that works on your computer.

    Also I had a bad DVD burner that made trouble for me. Bought a new 
one and now everything is nice again.
