Hi,

I have used gearoticm otion years ago on an older computer with windows 7 that has since died.

I would like to install gearoticm otion on this computer that runs Windows 8.1.

I have a lot of different versions of gearoticm otion and I have my license file, however no version will
install. The install starts then stops with the error as per the attachmen t.

I have done a search but nothing seems to match the problem.

I don't really need the newest version for the current project.

Any help would be appreciat ed.

Thanks

Hi Colundra:

   Use the site www.gearo tic.com , there is a link to a msi installer .
I made this for Win10 as it sometimes see's the word "Gearotic"
as Erotic and assumes its porn.

   The msi installer follows the win10 conventio n better and I dont
have reports of its failing.
 
  Also, many installs have timeouts set about 2 years after their
creation. This was done as a safety measure to ensure your
not using something long changed.

   As of next install, I have removed the two year time limit
for any installer executabl e. The MSI doesnt timeout at all.

Thx
