    So I did not realize (forgot) that I had SDK V5.4.... installed.

    I restarted my PC and I uninstalled that but got the exact same error when trying to install.

    I have W7 and VS2013 (latest everything in general). I am running "SitefinityTrialSetup_2014.04.exe" V1.0.0.0. Original filename 7zS.sfx.exe

    I cannot think of anything else.
