A much faster PC arrived at the shack yesterday, but a bit older. Pentium D (dual core circa 2005-2008) running Win 7 64bit Home premium, with 2GB ram, Radeon 6600 video card. Unfortunately, since this pc was given to me as is, I don't know its history. Nothing was loaded on the machine except Viper antivirus software. All software is updated.
I've successfully loaded SmartSDR CAT on 5 other machines (XP to WIN 7) and did not encoulter "The installer was interrupted before SmartSDR CAT could be installed" problem. This is also the error msg in and a similar issue to an earlier thread:
However, in my case I had never installed SmartSDR CAT before so there was nothing to uninstall. I just got this error screen on the first attempt.
I have tried:
Many attempts to reload it over two days - same error msg.
Uninstalled SmartSDR and reloaded, no help.
Redownloaded the SmartSDR and CAT software - tried again.
Disabled all non Microsoft processes from running.
Disabled the firewall and antivirus SW.
Tried loading SmartSDR CAT in compatibility mode (right click - Troubleshoot Compatibility)
Any other suggestions? Has anyone else seen this?
