No standalone GUI or VS2010 project installed

I am new to Sandcastle.  I followed the installation instructions but I can't see any standalone GUI in the start menu.  VS2010 also doesn't show any Sandcastle project.

What went wrong?

Did the guided installer display an error when it started?  On some systems, the content of the ZIP file containing the installer is blocked and the installer may fail to run. Before extracting it, right click on the ZIP file, select Properties, and click on the Unblock button if it is present in the lower right corner of the General tab in the properties dialog.  Once you've done that, extract the files again, re-run the installer, and install the Help File Buidler and the VSPackage (the final two steps before completion).

That did the trick, thanks!  I thought the installer would not run at all if the ZIP was blocked, so I did not think it applied to me.
