Recommended Posts

I just got a new corsair keyboard, but when i try to install the ICUE 4 and ICUE 3 software i get this error message
"Setup unable to install due to some error"

I have not had the icue software installed previously.

i have tried:
  Installing previous versions of the software, installing both on my external harddrive F:/ and my C:/ drive

This is my msi.log

SOLVED:  So I finally figured out how to get around this after uninstalling/deleting everything I could find related to Corsair and even all RGB programs installed on my PC.

Follow the instructions on this page to install the MSI package as an admin

I did the command prompt option and it worked like a charm to install normally.  Unfortunately, for me, I had deleted my profile by that point so I had to set up all my options again, but it wasn't too bad.  I now can use my macro keys again.
