Were you using the regular installer? Were you able to work around this somehow? Did you successfully install another version (like 13.0 or 12.0) before that?

I used installer provided on codeplex.
I did not attempt to work around. there wasn't sufficient information but I didn't check for an install log. The screen went blank, the cursor seemed to hang, and the situation remained until I rebooted.
I have had successful installs with versions prior to 13 without a problem.

Rebooted in safe mode and uninstalled. I'll wait a more stable release until then.

I truly like the functionality it provides for Windows. I wonder why Microsoft doesn't build in the functionality.

I'm sorry this isn't sufficient to troubleshoot with.

Hmm, yes, it's a little light for me to understand what's happening. You could always try again to see if you get a different result - and if it does end up jamming again, you could reinstall a previous version that worked.

I'll keep this open for now, there seems to be many different issues on Windows 10, which is a bit worrisome...

not a fan of reinstall because the environment is basically win 10 with symantec antivirus.

understood. thank you.
