Is everything closed, programs?
Defrag before install.
Where are you installing it to? C drive?
Do you have the latest GPU drivers?
Is windows all updated.

You can redownload the file from newtek and try again installing it.

U can uninstall the previous version.
Reboot before installing the new version.

I'm pretty sure your problem stems from having too many icons on your desktop. Hehe (sorry, I just had to ) :)

Reboot your PC then try again.

If another installer or updater has modified/installed the C++ runtimes then it will need rebooting before another installer can do the same.

If you had 11.6 running on your box you won't need to install these. When you run the installer don't just run the automatic version, select components to install and don't checkmark that stuff. Same way with the SafeNet Sentinel dongle drivers - skip that stuff. It should install just fine.
