This article combines known solutions for the most common problems which appear as an errors. First of all it is important to note that this issues are related to native Windows installation service errors that could be caused by internal problems and affect other executable files – not only our software.
If installation interrupts and no error message is shown (window closes and/or nothing happens at all or installation gets stuck) then you need to install program using command prompt to generate installation log file where you can find information on error that you encountered.
Below you can find solutions for most common errors.
“The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed”
Try to perform next steps:
For Windows 7 and older versions:
Press Win+R -> run services.msc -> locate Windows Installer Service and check its Startup Type – it should be set to “Manual” or “Automatic”. Click “Start” to start the service.
For Windows 8 and later:
Press Win+x -> Run -> services.msc -> locate Windows Installer Service and check its Startup Type – it should be set to “Manual” or “Automatic”. Click “Start” to start the service.
This error means that the .msi file is not in C:\Users\User name\AppData\Local\Temp\ and installation process can’t find this file in order to proceed. It is required to check if the .msi file is located in C:\Temp instead of the necessary location.
Navigate to C:\Temp
– create in the root of your C: drive three folders and name them “install”, “TEMP”, “TMP”. So their paths will look like these ones: “C:\install”, “C:\TEMP”, “C:\TMP”
– go to Control Panel, then select “System”, and then “Advanced” tab
– click on “Environment Variables” button
– set for “TEMP” and “TMP” variables the folders you created previously with help of “Edit” button
– place installation file in “C:\install” and run it
1722 “Blockmounter error”

“The installation is not adequate for running installation”
Use right-click on installation file – properties – compatibility – run this program in compatibility mode (set your Windows version).
1316 error “installing new program version over the old one” or “there is another … installed”
This sometimes happens when upgrading a Paragon program without uninstalling the previous version. New program installation attempts to uninstall the old one before installing itself. If it can’t find or access the old uninstaller, this error appears. It can be avoided by manually uninstalling the old program, rebooting, then installing the new one.
Also you might encounter this kind of problem:
You install product and error message appears “there is another installed” but in fact you don’t have previous version installed at the moment then to fix this problem you need to download installation file for previous version that was installed before – install it again and then uninstall it correctly (control panel – programs and features – find program and run uninstall – reboot – delete program folder). Then you will be able to install newer version of software.
If the value for either the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation DWORD or the Win31FileSystem DWORD is not 0, right click the DWORD, choose Modify, and set the value to “0”.
“Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service”
This is a Windows OS problem and could appear on some configurations. We suggest next:
Click Start, and then click Run (for Windows 7 and older versions) or press Win+X and select Run (for Windows 8 and newer versions).
Create new REG_DWORD with PoolUsageMaximum name and set its value to 60 decimal system.
Create new REG_DWORD with PagedPoolSize name and set its value to 0xFFFFFFFF in hexadecimal system.
Create new REG_DWORD with IRPStackSize name and set its value to 50 decimal system.
