I too have had the same problem for awhile now.
For some reason any version from 1.8.0 on will no longer install on my dedicated computer I use for my security and other CPU intense tasks. When I double click on the installer it quickly opens a small launcher window and then closes in the blink of an eye and it never opens the setup wizard. I have tried running it as admin and selected compatibility modes and many other ways and the same thing happens.
I am running Win 7 Pro as it is required for the other work I use that computer for. Last night I decided to do a fresh format and install of Win 7 and install all the latest drivers for all hardware and updated windows to all available updates. I still could not get the installer for any version from 1.8.0 and up to work. If I use 22.214.171.124 it installs no problem.
My computer is custom built with an ASUS ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard with 16 GB Kingston Ram. i7 7820x CPU. A Radeon R9 200 Series GPU.
My temp solution was to install the newest version on my older slower computer that is also running Win 7 Pro with all updates. Then I copied the “Netcam Studio - 64-bit” folder from the slower computer to the main computer along with the ProgramData Moonware folder and the start menu icons. It actually works that way but I would like to get it installed from the installer because I imagine things in the REG or other system32 files may be missing. Could someone please help? Thanks…
PS… I did look at event logs and nothing in any of them.
