Error message when installing fritzing

Hello, when installing fritzing I get the error message: “platforms” is not a valid short file name. The installation then aborts. What can I do?

Tell us what operating system and what Fritzing version (Fritzing 0.9.10 is the latest version) and what steps you are taking (especially if it involves the word “platforms”) to do the install? I have never heard of an error message like this before.


I have already solved the problem.
I searched the Windows registry and found a number of entries that contained “fritzing”.
I have deleted all of these entries, which can be very dangerous. Luckily it went well.
Then I was able to install Fritzing without any problems.

Check if the download address is correct.
