Author Topic: Cannot install launcher. "Installation aborted"  (Read 689 times)

I cannot install the launcher no matter what I do. I installed the launcher before, but couldnt install anything within it (It gave me a "launcher corrupted" error) However, now that I'm trying to reinstall the launcher, it won't install at all.

I've removed every trace of the old launcher I can think of. Not sure what to do next.

This usually happens because something is still left in the registry. You can open it up using run->regedit and find the key and and delete it, or use a cleaner, but make sure you make a back up. I would recommend doing it manually first if possible.

Check under: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\

My key is under Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\8b9320fe-2b31-562a-9f54-9956b024276d

You may or may not need to check and remove anything related to the launcher under AppData and your Program Files, but I think the key is the main issue.

I am able to delete the key. However, this does not solve the issue. Upon running the launcher I get the same error, and the key re-appears in my registry.

Did you also remove all traces of the program in your folders? Check your AppData folder, and Program Files folder.

Make sure you have nothing in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Allegorithmic\Substance Launcher

Usually removing the registry information will work: https://forum.substance3d.com/index.php?topic=33010.0

I cleared those files when deleting the launcher before. It still will not install.

You can try just downloading Painter directly from here then.
