Having trouble installing LC 6.7.x in Win 10

Post by djkesler » Thu Aug 13, 2015 4:32 pm

I am running Win 10 under Parallels 10 in OS X 10.10.4.

I was able to install LC 7.1 successfully, but I keep running into a problem with LC 6.7.6 or LC 6.7.7.

Either I get a message that I need Administrator privileges (all users or custom install), or after installing for a single user, it failed to create the LiveCode 6.7.7(rc2).lnk shortcut file and removes everything.

If I run the installer with Admin privileges from explorer, I still get the message that says I need admin privileges.

When I test in the troubleshooting mode with admin privileges, I get "Could not launch installer slave."

What's different between the 6.7 and 7.1 installers?

Thanks for any help.

Don't know if this would work, but try creating an additional local administrator account (without a Microsoft account) and then try to install LC 6.7.x while logged into that new administrator account. If it installs, then you can narrow down the cause to a problem with the user account you originally tried to install with.
