I assume you've tried the usual suspects - do not install in Program Files, run all .exe as administrator, use XP compatibility mode. (Most installers, particularly payware, require access to the registry; windows will block this without admin privileges, and will block access from Program Files to/from many other areas.)

This is related to the SECDRV/KB3086255 issue...…..


The KB was introduced by MS as an update to disable SECDRV as it is deemed to be security risk. They issued the update to Win 7, 8 and Vista users after taking the decision to totally remove from future OS (starting with Win 10).


As you have Win 7 you have a number of options...…


1. Re-enable SECDRV.

2. Delete the KB - this is a temp method as the win update procedure will eventually re-load and install the KB update after a short time period.

3. Use of a method that normally, if discussed on the forum will lead to the thread being closed and deleted as it is seen as a 'crack' which goes against the EULA - see your PM box for details


Details on how to do the first two methods can be found HERE
