@ A Guy, did you download the correct version? Just for fun I double double clicked the x86 version and I got that message. If I double click the x64 version I get an already installed message. Like you I'm running Home Premium x64.

Yes, I tried the x64. Not worried, as personally, I consider myself backwards compatible

That can so be taken the wrong way.

Shame it didn't fix my one issue with compatibility still I can see the use if it actually works though.
