    Make sure you are logged from administrator. also make sure you have installed this OED successfully without any file missing . else try this Process Monitor . Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon, and adds an extensive list of enhancements including rich and non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties such session IDs and user names, reliable process information, full thread stacks with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging to a file, and much more

    I think Oxford English Dictionary is not compatible with windows 7 .As in requirement windows 7 is not mention there is chance that it will not work on it and somehow even if it start you will face lots of control problem.

    System Requirements

    • Macintosh: Power PC G4 867MHz or faster processor; Intel Core Duo 2.13GHz or faster processor; Mac OS X v.10.4x or 10.5x.

    I think for chance you must try compatibility mode for the Oxford English Dictionary application also try right-click the setup.exe file named > Properties > Compatibility Tab. here choose Vista compatibility mode to run the program
