When trying to install Forza! LITE, I get the following message:
Forza! LITE installer said...
The installer can't find any installed version of Finale on this computer. The installation can't continue.

This is on German Windows XP with English Finale 2012c. Finale is installed at
C:\Programme\Finale 2012

I believe I left all the installation settings at their default, except for deselecting the playback related stuff that I don't need.

Might I be doing something wrong, or is this a bug in the installer? Is the installer maybe looking for a certain registry entry that I might be able to add manually?

Jari Williamsson has not updated Forza since 2004, according to his website. Most of the functionality in Forza Lite seems (on cursory inspection) to be available in his other new plug-ins, or has now been implemented in Finale itself. It may be that the installer does not recognise Finale 2012 because it's too new.

You can always contact Jari directly on his website, or he may comment here in due course.
