Apparently, this is the only way to respond to answers. I have 16GB of RAM, 463GB of free space on my SSHD, Win 8.1 64 bit. It should work. I do have anti-virus that I cannot turn off (company computer, I only personally own a MAC). But I have full admin rights otherwise, and I have installed many programs without any problem.
Also, if the anti-virus was blocking the install, I should get a warning or message from the anti-virus, yes? I get nothing.
I even ran a security scan one the .exe file using the antivirus SW, and it says nothing found (no virus, scan is ok),
I tried the link to the "Super Tuner" and the SW install gets further, (looks like it's going to work) then it hangs up. Then I have to run Task Manager (which tells me the program is not responding - duh) and I have to kill it from there. I tried all the selections of compatibility mode, Run as Administrator, no luck.
I also recently had the MS .Net Framework V4.5 & 3.5 installed (for work related reasons) hoping that would solve the problem (many programs use .Net Framework) but no luck there either.
Thanks for trying guys, but I'm still dead in the water. (or the garage..)
