I am trying to install The Desktop Engineer on my computer at work. Somehow it doesn't work. Do you have any suggestion what to do? Could you provide step by step directions how to proceed? I, aircraft stress engineer, am a longtime user of The Desktop Engineer. It appears that the author of program, company Desktop Engineering Int'l are not in business anymore.

Indeed, their website is not available anymore. I have tried to access it, but it displays a generic page instead. However, it's possible at this time the software might lack compatibility with the operating system you're trying to install it on. I recommend applying a compatibility tweak. Right click the setup file, and then go to Properties > Compatibility. Once you window opens, select a prior version of Windows that you know it worked and then launch it as administrator.
