I have tried the following things:

- Checked "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)" and "Disable script debugging (Other)" from Internet Options

- Unchecked "Display a notification about every script error " from Internet Options

- Reset IE settings

- Update IE10 to IE11

- Disabled IE from Windows Features

- Run regsvr32 C:\Windows\system32\vbscript.dll

- Changed default browser (IE, FF, Chrome)

- Created a new Windows user profile and try the installer there

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!


Best Regards,
