    old 32-bit installer no longer works on Windows 10 since recent update


    I have some 32bit software that I installed on Windows 10 a few months ago.
    For some reason I needed to reinstall that software, but now the 32 bit installer crashes.
    Has a recent update knocked something off?

    (I have tried running it as admin, compatibility mode etc. Not working.)

    Hi Bansaw

    Saw your comment "for some reason I needed to re-install"

    I have no proof but I'm going to suggest that maybe the original is still installed in some capacity. I would look at manufacture's site for a removal tool and then re-run installer.

    Thanks. I have a portable uninstaller I used after the Windows uninstall. It removed all the relevant registry entries etc. So it did get cleaned properly.

    What's the software? It might also help to know why you needed to reinstall, in case the same 'some reason' may be interfering with the installer.

    Do you have any third-party antivirus program other than windows defender installed that could be interfering with the installer? Try disabling it temporarily and/or uninstall the third-party antivirus and rerun the installer to see if it goes through.

    I installed it in safe mode, it worked that way.
