Hello,

Try this 1

Click on Start --> In search box, type cmd and press Enter.

"Command Prompt" will be opened. Now enter the below command

regsvr32 /i SHELL32.DLL ---> Press Enter.

[Note : You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the command prompt

and paste it]

Restart your computer and try to install the application.

If the problem still exists then try to download the application once again from a

different browser( try in "Firefox").

Good Luck
