I have almost exactly the same problem as Steve  (post Mar 17,20160) re trying to install the latest version of RUT  viewer on a W10 system and the install process requiring still requing 5.6msi which is nowhere on my system. I have gone through the same proceses including RegEdit. If you could also send me a link to download 5.6 installer hopefully that will allow me to install 5.6 again and then upgrade to the latest version.  Regards, Mike

Hello Mike,

Thank you for your post.

Actually, you do not need the old installer. This is an issue with MSI temporary files. You just to clear fix program uninstall. Microsoft offers a free fixing tool for that:


After you fixed the problem you can try installing the latest Viewer.

Let us know if it works for you. Thanks.

Hi Conrad,

Thanks for the amazingly prompt response, that fix sorted the problem and everything now works with the latest version and i've been able to import my old connection details and licence.

Thanks once again for your help.
