Re: error code 17

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 


What version of Windows are you using? 


Try downloading the full installer package from and using it instead. Also, make sure you are running the installer as administrator (Right click > Run as Administrator). You might also need to temporarily disable your anti-virus if you are having issues.
