    1. Are there multiple users on this pc? If so then make sure to check each user's folder just in case. Other than that I am not sure. I encountered this problem on Windows 7. I suggest checking the event viewer after the install fails to see if you find any useful information.

    1. You are very welcome. I just hope they don't do something like this again in the future. I haven't had any experience with the 2012 or 2014 installers yet.
