      Hi. I’m trying to install ActivInspire on Windows 8.1.
      Downloaded installation file from your website, tried the UK and the US versions, and then version 1.7 just to be sure.
      I always get the error 1612 at the end of the installation, for all parts of the software (Flashplayer included).
      I’ve run MicrosoftFixit, which found no issues.
      Any suggestions, please?

      Hi,

      Thank you for your post.

      1 – is this a new install of ActivInspire on this computer? Or did you already have an older version?
      2 – are you logged in with admin rights?
      3 – is this a network installation?

      Thank you for your cooperation.

      Kind regards,

      Miguel

      Hello!
      I’m having the same problem. 
      It’s a new install, I’m logged in with admin rights and it’s not a network install as well. 

      What should I do now? 

      Best,

      Hi Kadu,

      Thank you for posting.

      You may need to redownload a fresh copy of ActivInspire, and also ensure that you haven’t got any refer to ActivInspire installed on the computer already.

      If you still encounter the issue, you may need to run Microsoft Fix it tool to fix any registry issues:
      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/mats/program_install_and_uninstall?wa=wsignin1.0

      I hope this information helps.

      Kind regards,
      Adam

      Hello,

      I’m having this same issue. I’m running the latest windows 10, I have admin rights and it is not a network install.
      There are no other copies of this software on this laptop and I have deleted and re-installed a new copy. It still doesn’t install and continues to display ‘An error was encountered whilst installing: ActivInspire Err: 1612
      HelpEnglish (United Kingdom) Err: 1612
      Core ResourcesEnglish (United Kingdom) Err:1612
      Hand Writing RecognitionEnglish (United Kingdom) Err: 1612

      Hi wilkensf

      Apologies, seems like Microsoft have removed their help article for this issue.

      I would recommend manually uninstall ActivInspire by following the below article:

      https://support.prometheanworld.com/article/?kb=1644

      Once uninstalled please restart the computer and then attempt to install ActivInspire as a local admin on the computer.

      If you still have any issues please let me know.

      Thanks

      Hi wilkensf,

      During the installation, its possible that some of the contents had already been put in place on the computer.

      Please can you ensure that none of these locations exist?

      If they don’t, please log on with a local admin account and try the install again.

      Kind regards,
