Thanks for sending the requested logs.
We are currently analyziong it.
By the way, did you install spacedesk Driver before? Or is this the first time you try to install spacedesk?September 22, 2021 at 7:46 am #3370
Yes I did have an older version installed (maybe at least 1 year older) without any problems. When I first tried the install of the latest version, it failed; I think that it failed trying to uninstall the older version. I then looked at your website and followed the instructions re removing various files. Even though I log on with Admin. privileges, Windows would not let me remove files from the Windows directory; so I was unable to complete the removal of certain files as per your instructions. I am unfamiliar with the Group policy set-up under the current version of Windows and could not find any way to increase my privileges to enable the removal of files from the Windows directory. The incomplete removal of the older version may well be causing the error when trying to install the latest version.

You might be right, maybe the incomplete uninstallation of previous version is causing the problem.
Could you please open the device manager (just run devmgmt.msc), cliek View tab -> “Device by Connection” and “Show hidden devices”.
Then check if you can find any spacedesk devices or “Unknown device” in the list and just right-click and uninstall it, then reboot your primary machine, and try again with spacedesk.September 24, 2021 at 1:49 am #3424
I ran Device Manager and did not see any SpaceDesk devices. I have attached a list generated by Aida64 Extreme which shows all the Windows devices currently on my PC.
I have previously removed SpaceDesk devices as per your website instructions to manually uninstall SpaceDesk prior to my attempting a re-install the latest version.

When you manually uninstall the previous version of spacedesk, did you also delete manually all spacedesk related registry keys in Windows Registry?September 24, 2021 at 7:29 am #3439
Yes – I removed the following entries as per Step 6 on your support page:
I have checked the registry today and confirm that the above entries do not exist.

Please try try the Install/Uninstall troubleshooter program https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed
If spacedesk is not on the program list, just select “Not Listed” then paste the product code of current spacedesk version below.
After that, please reboot then try again the installer.September 28, 2021 at 9:37 pm #3507
I ran the Windows Troubleshooter which DID detect and fix some problems.
I have successfully installed the SpaceDesk Windows Driver – problem now resolved.
I really appreciate the assistance that you have provided to me to resolve the installation error – THANK YOU.
