These steps assume you have backed up your custom SSL certificates. It is also assumed that you are running all programs as a local user with administrative privileges. To do so, when UAC is enabled, right-click on the installer program and select Run as Administrator.

Additionally, you must ensure the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package is installed for your 64-bit platform and architecture. Be sure to stop any other programs on your system that are utilizing WinPcap.
