I downloaded you panarama program but when I try to open it all it does is install.

The file you downloaded, pf2p4.exe, is the installer for The Panorama Factory, not the program itself. When you install The Panorama Factory, it installs multiple files in a folder on your disk and adds commands to the Windows Start menu that can be used to run the program. The installer does not automatically create a desktop icon for The Panorama Factory.
To run the program after installing, select the Windows Start menu (normally in the lower-lefthand corner of your screen). Then select the Programs folder and the Smoky City Design sub-folder. The Panorama Factory application should be in that folder.
If you want to create a desktop icon for The Panorama Factory, right-click on The Panorama Factory icon in the Start menu. Select "Send to" from the pop-up menu and then select "Desktop (create shortcut)."

If you're receiving the message:
Can't start the application because files cannot be created in the system Temp folder H:\this indicates that the system Temp folder is set to H:\, not to h:\TEMP or H:\TMP. You have run into a limitation of The Panorama Factory that the Temp folder cannot be set to the root of a disk drive, it must be set to a folder within the drive.
Please double check your Environment variables. The Environment variable used by The Panorama Factory is the TMP variable. Sometimes Windows systems also have a TEMP variable, but this one does not affect The Panorama Factory. And sometimes this variable is set both as a System variable and as a User variable. In this case, the User variable overrides the system.
If you still are unable to get it to run after double-checking the Environment variables, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for personalized assistance.
