VSE 8.8 Patch 8 Install Fail on Win10

I have downloaded the latest file from McAfee, but it will not install.  It runs for about 10 minutes, then does a very long rollback.

Installer runs very slow, especially since this is new equipment.

Running Anniversary version of Win10.

Is there any other McAfee Products that is installed in the machine? Like HIPS, DLP

Re: VSE 8.8 Patch 8 Install Fail on Win10

No, but I do have an update.  VSE 8.8 will install most of the time, but it takes a very long time.  This is recently purchased hardware with SSD drives and it takes 10-20 minutes to install if it doesn't outright fail.

Have you figured out what was causing this? We have same issue.. Only when installing on SSD drives. Mechanical drives are fine.
