Default for what library - x86 or x64. Most programs will install in x86.

I just see that you have very little space on C which I assume is a SSD. Get rid of the hiberfile. The command is powercfg -h off

Of course that works - I have done that many times. What happened. You probably did not run cmd in elevated mode or made a mistake in the format - with the spaces.

And if you pointed the installer to F, did you really make a folder of program files in F and put that path into the reg.

the command worked, but seemed like it did nothing, and I did put it to a Program files folder on my F, but it messed a few things up and didn't fix my problem, so i reverted it.

Reboot when done.

Btw: I have only 40% vision and a very hard time to read your snips. Is black writing on white backhround possible.
Sorry to bother you again, but no one else seems to be able to help me as much as you. Do you have any other ideas for my installing issue?

1. Remind me - what was the original path that was stored in the Registry for Program Files and Program files x86.

2. Did you get powercfg -h off to work

3. If you post black snips, assume that I cannot read them because I am half blind.

1. C:\program files / C:\program files(x86)

2. Yes, but it didn't free up much space.

3. Ok, sorry.
