When you attempt to install the McAfee Windows Security Suite, the installation fails and the installer displays a red banner with either of the following error messages:
Unable to Continue Installation. We are having trouble installing your McAfee software because of this. Error 0
Something went wrong with the installation
We are having trouble installing your McAfee software. Contact McAfee Support and mention problem code 0.
Solution 1 - Run the McPreInstall tool
Solution 2 - Run McAfee Virtual Technician (MVT)
Solution 3 - Re-download the installation package after running the Removal Tool
Solution 4 - Resolve any DNS issues
Installation issues might occur if name resolution (DNS) is slow. Changing the DNS setting on your network card to a public server might help to resolve these issues. For details on how to do this, see TS102487.
When you have made these changes, retry the installation. If the installation fails again, contact Technical Support: https://service.mcafee.com/
