after buying the game it began installing its self and it came to a part in the installation that reads waiting for install helper. its been at this for about 3 hours and im wondering what to do to speed this up. i have restarted desura twice, what can i do?

Installation should definitely not take three hours to run, so there's probably something going wrong. Are you installing the game using the Desura client or using the standalone EXE installer? If you're using the Desura client then you can try using the standalone installer instead. You can get that by logging in to the Desura web page in a browser (e.g. Chrome, Internet Explorer), visiting the game's page and then clicking "Super Amazing Wagon Adventure EXE Installer" on the right hand side of the page. From there you can run the game's installer, and this should hopefully work.

Sorry things aren't working for you, and let me know if things still aren't working with the standalone installer.

That's strange. Just to check, how are you launching the EXE file? Are you clicking on the installer link from within Desura or from within a web browser? The Desura client doesn't support downloading standalone installers, so to download and run the installer you'll have to open up a browser separate from the Desura client (Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox should work), visit desura.com and log in, and then visit the game's page to download the installer.

Once you have the installer downloaded, there should be a file named "WagonAdventureSetup1.0.4.exe" in you Downloads folder. You should be able to open up your Downloads folder by typing "Downloads" into the Start menu. Once in that folder you should see this EXE file and you should be able to double click the EXE file to run it.

My apologies if this is already what you're doing. I just want to be sure we're on the same page.

Unfortunately I'm not sure what's going on then. Normally when you double click the file you should see a "User Account Control" dialog similar to this: En.wikipedia.org Can I ask what version of Windows you're running (8, 7, Vista, or XP)? Also, do you run any sort of anti virus software? My best guess is that perhaps Windows or some kind of anti virus software is blocking you from running the installer.

One thing you might try is instead of double clicking on the EXE file, right click on it and click "Run as Administrator". This shouldn't normally be necessary but if for some reason your Windows account doesn't have permission to install software than this could fix it. If you run anti virus software, you might want to check to be sure it's not blocking the installer from running. Sometimes anti virus software will try to block you from running EXE files you download off the internet.
