  • Alright, there we go. Just bought EEP17 Expert as download. Paid and downloaded from the store site. Firefox gave a security warning as this download having a potential security risk, allowed the download and all went fine. Tried for now to install 17 without activation, after ignoring the Widows warning and giving permission, tried to install as administrator, Nada. White listed the download in the firewall, tried again, without and with administrator rights. A lot of activity on the disk, but setup does not start. The task manager does not show any related activity either. Downloaded the ISO file as well, but that wont start and gives the message: "The disc image file is corrupt"

    Any suggestions? :ao_1:


    Thanks for any kind of help. :aq_1:

    Hi Robert :)


    not really. But are there any hints in the event viewer? It might be possible that the download is incomplete or damaged. You could try to re-download after deleting the browser cache. Or maybe marler1957 may help?


    Edit: another client had the same problem: EEP 17 lässt sich nicht unter Windows 11 installieren. So please try to re-download.

  • Hi Ingo,

    Like always, you are the light who tries to shine whenever someone has problems with EEP. Thanks so much for your ongoing efforts. :aq_1:

    I downloaded 17 again with the MSEdge browser, just to see if Firefox has a problem with the download. Microsoft Edge gave the same warnings that this download is not safe. Something in the program files must cause that. Anyhow, after ignoring all warnings and reporting the website as safe to MS, it downloaded and ignoring the usual Windows warning of "don't run" too, the setup started and installed the program on the drive of my choice. Running EEP from one of my SSD disc's. As an extra site note: running F-secure security, maybe that's the one causing those problems. (Spectrum free security for clients) When trying to open the ISO file, it still causes the same message; "The disc image file is corrupted".

  • Hi Robert & Ingo,

    Exactly the same problem here.

    Maybe we have to wait for the official release date?

  • Hi,


    Have you tried to download without your antivirus program activated ? It's possible your AV messes the download up by trying to remove reported files.


    Hallo,


    Heb je al eens geprobeerd om te downloaden zonder ingeschakelde AV ? Het gebeurt al eens dat een AV-programma een download "beschadigt" wegens melding van verdachte bestanden.

    Hi :)


    in addition to eepnolie (NR1) : no, you have to try it again. If possible do it during the night when only a few users are on-line.

  • Hi to all,


    installation of the new EEP 17: absolutely failed.


    My default conditions -> the new (!) installation of Windows 10 Pro, Windows defender disabled, the .exe file running as administrator.


    There is no activity at all on screen...


    The .iso file download: "The disc image file not valid"...


    Re-download files (.exe, .iso): no progress...


    I have no idea how to continue. :-(

  • Hi,


    Microsoft Defender Smartscreen is causing the problem.

    If it's ON, you will get an unsave download P17EXPESDDE.exe, size 1.9 GB (corrupt).

    If it's OFF, you get an unsave download P17EXPESDDE.exe, size 3.5 GB (ok).

    Now you can run the download and install EEP17.

    So far so good ...

  • Hi,

    You can disable Microsoft Defender Smartscreen in your Microsoft Edge Browser properties: Via the 3 dots, select properties -> privacy -> security.

    There you should find the button to turn Microsoft Defender Smartscreen OFF.

    Succes
