Having trouble installing Pro Engineer 4.0?

I'm trying to install Pro E on Vista. I get to the part titled "license configuration" which requires you to enter a product key. I put in the product key and then my [PTC] user/account name with the corresponding password. I then get a message saying:

"PTC.setup was unable to contact the PTC download server. If you use a proxy server with your web browser to sccess the internet, you will need to specify that server now for PTC.setup. Would you like to specify a proxy server?"

options are: y/n. If I choose no then I can't install. If I choose yes then I get a box that's titled "Proxy configuration." Inside the box, it reads "Please specify your HTTP Proxy" and I have to type in something in the blanks labeled "Host Address" and "port" with the default input being "-1".

I wonder if during my first attempt of installing the program if Norton Anti virus asked me if I wish to allow Pro E to access the internet. I wonder if I chose to not allow Pro E to do so by accident. It seems like Pro E is trying to access the internet and can't. My browser works fine (I'm on Y!A after all). I don't know how to allow it to get access to the internet again however -- or is my problem completely unrelated to internet connection?


Another method of accomplishing the same objective as above is to "Browse to local license file (off-line mode)". There is a blank labeled "License File Path" and I have the option of browsing through the files on my comp to find the appropriate file. I tried finding this file and I couldn't. Some internet source told me to look for a file with a ".dat" ending and I still couldn't find the appropriate file.
