Am I The Only One Who Has Problems Installing Milestone?

I've been trying to install Milestone XProtect Enterprise for a few days now, and each time I try, installation fails. It would fail usually at the same spot, saying there was some Installation.Exception or SQL error.

I had to spend half a day restoring the PC (which is only used for running Milestone) after failed install attempts, and the other half waiting for PC updates and "thankfully" Milestone successfully installed.

Why is this such an issue? Out of the other VMS installations I have seen or done, none have been quite as troublesome as Milestone. Have others seen or experienced similar issues installing Milestone, or perhaps any other VMS? Or am I simply unlucky?
