I keep getting this message when i try to install the program:

There is a problem with this Windows a Insataller package.
A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run.
Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

I try'd to install the program on a win 8, and this work just fine.

I have seen a couple of oddities of late with the 32 bit msi installer. Are you able to try forcing the use of the 64bit one from an administrator command prompt

Code: Select all

C:\windows\syswow64\msiexec.exe /i {YourPCPathTo}\PicoLog.msi
