Trying to install the Host .msi package on a windows 8 64bit and it start to work but then stops at eh install window and just hangs there .. I had a older version that failed to uninstall and had to delete it.
Any ideas as to what I can do to force the install or do a older cleanup?
I uploaded a i,age where it hangs at during the install
1. Add the Host installer to your antivirus software exceptions list. Specifically, add two folders to the exceptions: the folder where you downloaded the installer (I also recommend that you re-download the file) and the target folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Remote Utilities - Host". The latter may not be created yet, just add it manually to your a/v exceptions.
3. You may also check the Microsoft Fixit tool in case you cannot get rid of your previous installation.
Once you complete the steps above, restart your computer and try installing again. Make sure that the Windows account has full administrative privileges because they are required when installing the Host (it runs as a system service after the installation).
