    This may not help, but in the past ive had to wait a very long time for the installer to fire up, ive got the same screen as you, it seems to just lock up age's, then after about half an hour, even longer maybe, decide's to continue installing. Try it one more time untill your patience runs out, Also, my memory's abit hazy on this but didn't Flight1 or Just filght have reg tool for hunting down any unremoved element's, hopefully other forum member's will point you in the right direction
