    Hello Baymax20,

    I just tried the installation of LTPowerCAD on a PC where it wasn't installed before. The installation failed with the same error message as you have reported.

     Downloading 'SQL Server Compact Edition\SSCERuntime-ENU-x64.msi' from '' to 'C:\Users\helmut\AppData\Local\Temp\VSDF412.tmp\'
    Download completed at 01.03.2020 07:23:25
    Downloading failed with HRESULT=-2146697210

    The installer tries to download "SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2" from Microsoft, but Microsoft has removed this file from their website.

    Hello support team from ADI,

    Please repair your installer in, because no new user can install LTPowerCAD until this problem will be fixed.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. This new issue is caused by Microsoft just removed the SQL 3.5 download link.

    We've just made a fix of the installation package and updated it on the ADI website 

    The installation process is the same. You can still install the program using the setup.exe file as before, but now during the installation, the program will install the required MS files from the local installer.

    Please let us know if this solves your issue.
