LTspice not installing properly with Win10

I am having problems with the latest LTspice version XVII. I can go through the install process, but can't install a desktop link, and there is no executable that works in the folder . I had an old version so removed it, now can't run the new version.

    Hello,

    > There is no need to re-install LTspiceXVII, when you already have an older version installed. Just do an update with the command from the menu of LTspice: Tools->Sync Release.

    Now after you deleted/uninstalled the program, you have to re-install it of course.
    You should use the same login on your PC for the installation and the later execution of the program.
    Do you use any special anti-vrus sioftware which blocks the execution of XVIIx64.exe or XVIIx86.exe?

    I just downloaded and then installed LTspiceXVII on a PC with WIN10. It's working as expected. So it must be a specifiic problem on your PC.

    You could at least install in parallel the old LTspiceIV for a test.

  • Thanx for response.

    The executable and all files get appropriately loaded in to Program Files \LTC directory.  Double clicking the X64 executable starts to do something but then no further action.  I changed compatibility settings, and upgraded permissions, but still got the same results.  I disabled realtime protection in pc security, and the executable then ran.  I reinstated realtime protection, and the executable now starts fine - so it seems that Win10 is now happy with the app, but perhaps initially associated it with a whitelist threat.

    Hello Ta,

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. It will help others, if they have a similar problem.
    I am happy that LTspiceXVII now works on your PC too.

    Best regards,
    Helmut
