I am not aware of any specific issues, other than the possibility that you're not installing with full administrator rights.. however, it is much preferred to install on each workstation, rather than install on the server.. a bit more work, but much faster performance, less network I/O, etc..
if you can determine the exact or approximate spot where it fails, based on what actually gets installed, it might provide an important clue..
also, you'll get a lot more help on the community newsgroup, which you can find on my Links page.. most of the long-standing Paradox development community hangs out there, not here..

I actually just got it to install. Instead of running setup through the autorun feature on the CD, I ran the setup in the folder that contained the setup for Paradox. This time the installation finished and I was able to launch Paradox just fine.
