Not sure.  Does it happen right at the start?

Otherwise, there should be a logfile in the root of the
installation, e.g.  c:\texlive\2011\install-tl.log.

You can get a bit more information by starting install-tl-advanced
from a command prompt and adding a parameter `-v':

<path to>\install-tl-advanced -v

Then you can also copy-and-paste screen output into your answer in
case it contains relevant stuff that didn't make it to the logfile.
Or provide a screenshot.
