Question Cannot install Calibre 8.6 in Windows 7

I have cleaned out all the Calibre files I can find, restarted computer, downloaded a new copy of Calibre 8.6 but still cannot get it to install. After double-clicking, the install starts, do the EULA and get to where to install program. I have both sellected a file location and let it install to the quagmire of C:\Programs Files. The next happening is a dialog box that says "Calibre Setup: Another installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before continuing this one." Beats me, nothing else is active in program Manager and Applications are zero use with a occasional tiny blip. I had Calibre 7.x install before but have lost that in trying to update. (Books OK) Any suggestions or brilliant insight. I have reached my limit.

reboot your computer, run a registry cleaner.

This is a problem with your PC - not with the Calibre install. If you try googling for the particular error message then you should be able to find guidance on how to fix the problem. You definitely want to fix it or other software (not just Calibre) is likely to encounter the same issue.

What operating system? If it's Linux, don't try to use the version of Calibre that came with your distribution; download from the Calibre site. Version 0.8.6 is VERY old.
