Hello mean while I downloaded the tool and use it. and opened by the end of the process a formal ticket so the logs are there already.

After that I tried to install the new version on another computer which runs Windows 10 64Bit Build 1903 (without the November release) on it I already have version 3.8.3 installed.

I did not removed the old version. But try to install on it the version 4. But it failed with the same Error during installation.

the ticket number is: 2762980
