Windows 8 Troubleshooting
The following known errors on Windows 8 have been reported. Please see below for information on troubleshooting these known issues.
If you get an error while installing the software, such as “The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining the new installer from the application author,” you may need to disable your anti-virus or Internet security programs and try installing the software again. You may enable the antivirus or Internet security program again after installation is complete.
For more information on how to disable anti-virus programs in Windows, please visit the web site of the software provider of your anti-virus program. For example, if you use Norton or MacAfee products, you may need to visit the Norton or the MacAfee web site and search for “how to disable antivirus in Windows 8.” Anti-virus programs are different from firewall technology, so be sure to disable the anti-virus program, and be sure to re-enable to program after you have installed the practice exam software.
While Windows doesn’t include default antivirus software, Windows can often detect antivirus software installed by you or the manufacturer of your computer and typically displays the status of any such software in the Action Center, which is located in the Control Panel under System and Security (selectReview Your Computer’s Status). Window’s help feature can also provide more information on how to detect your anti-virus software. If the anti-virus software is on, check the Help feature that came with that software for information on how to disable it.
Windows will not detect all anti-virus software. If your anti-virus software isn’t displayed in the Action Center you can try typing the name of the software or the publisher in the Start Menu’s search field.
