Error installing Dashboard Windows 10 1903 / Z400s

Getting an error at the end of the install process for Dashboard vers. - “The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)”; Windows 10 1903 on a Dell Inspiron 13-7359 with a Z400s 256GB.  The process creates a Sandisk folder in C:\Program Files (x86) - 231MB in 478 files and 22 folders, but doesn’t create an entry in the Programs menu. Tried running the installer “As Administrator”, no difference.  Trying to run SanDiskSSDDashboard.exe from the folder created by the installer results in error “The SSD Dashboard application was not installed correctly”.  Need Dashboard to update firmware.  Any ideas?
