I tried downloading the Tor package for Windows. It extracts but does not launch the Vidalia installer as shown on the installation page. I looked for an app to launch the installer but did not find one. When I tried to launch Tor, it crashed Windows. When I launch Vidalia, it tries to start but fails. The first time, I downloaded the Tor package with iron. I deleted all files and downloaded a second time with Firefox.

I now have Vidalia running, but I don't think Tor Button is installed as a plugin in Firefox, and when I check whether Tor is running, I get the window that says it isn't running. The main problem is that when I download and extract, that's the end. There is no installer. I'm watching an installation tutorial video, but he's using Vista. So, the key issue is still that in the subject of the bug. The installer doesn't launch, and I don't know how to launch it.

I managed to run Starttorbrowser and did get a working version of Firefox with a different IP and Tor running. However, today, I tried to do that again and Windows crashed with a blue window error. I don't know whether that was caused by improper installation.
