Re: Windows 10 installation error

@georgealon : your installation tips don't work, first because the installer file isn't a msi file, but it's an exe file. Then, even if the SanDisk folder under "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" is clean, the installation failed. I don't know what exactly what it occurs, and why the installation failed each time.


The only way that worked for me is the method of @paulyates :

So, I finally got mine working after numerous failed attempts. Here's exactly what I did...


  • Download dashboard 1.4.1 from Major geeks and install.
  • Close dashboard (from system tray too),
  • Use control panel - Programs and Features to remove version 1.4.1.
  • Install 1.4.2

No other actions between these steps (IE No need to reboot etc).


I can only assume that the 1.4.2 upgrade does not remove everything it should when it deinstalls 1.4.1
