hiya

 

I run Win10 pro 64-bit and am trying to install several add-on programs for Photoshop CC. Most of them are no problem, but the moment I try to install Alien Skin Software or Fluid Mask, the installation hangs because it wants to install vcredist_64.exe. I can only stop the installation via the task manager.

 

I checked my system an have on it both x86 and x64 versions from 2005 till 2015. I can't uninstall neither nor install over the top. everytime the installation process hangs.

 

I tried MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall.meta.diagcab and the installation system repair. a restore point does not exist even though I manually created them. Resetting the system with  RollbackRX  to the (for me) last safe install (Photoshop worked fine) didn't help either.

 

what else can I try? (I got the suspicion that somehow I don't have permisson for certain locations on C - even though I have admin rights). any suggestions?

 

thanks in advance

Right click and run the installer as an administrator... maybe.

Thanks ,,, it worked (sort of)

Installation of C++ takes about an hour ... after that the program installs with no probs.
