Of course it should. Normally the Reader should act like described in 
the following: The first time you click on one of the "PDF install 
messages" it should produce a warning, that you're going to open an 
external program or script. Afterwards you can accept or deny the 
execution (you should choose "Open" doing this).

What i don't know exactly is what happens in case you've denied the 
opening of external scripts once, and having choosed the option, that 
you don't want to be bothered with that prompt anymore. Maybe your 
problems result from something like this?

In case everything fails, you can come along with this, by installing 
MiKTeX manually. Coming from the root directory of the TeXLive DVD 
you'll find the corresponding installation procedures in the subdirectores:

MiKTeX: \protext\MiKTeX\setup
TeXnicCenter: \protext\TeXnicCenter
Ghostscript/GSview: \protext\gsv

Good luck - Thomas
