hi,
could you move the smallest message box so we can read the folder name? :wink:

I really hope that I never have to encounter that! :roll:

This is an error from the Windows Installer (the software that installed MSI files) and unrelated to QCAD.

It seems to be a common problem on Windows and there are several approaches to fix it:

For example:

Or:

Alternatively, you can simply download the .zip archive from us instead. This can be extracted and run from anywhere on any disk.

PS: Moved topic to "QCAD Installation and Upgrades" forum.
