Applies to: Docklight / Docklight Scripting (all versions), Article ID: dl_prb045

On isolated Windows computers, and especially after the Windows 10 Creators update, some users have reported that Docklight now does not start as usually, but is blocked by a Windows Installer / setup dialog. In most cases it is the installer for a Microsoft Office 2010 package, but also National Instruments Labview or other third-party applications have been mentioned. This seems to be caused by differing versions of certain Microsoft components which Docklight, but also the mentioned applications use.

Suggested resolution: Please deinstall Docklight and re-install the updated support version from the link(s) below. If the problem still persists, please contact a screenshot of what is happening and we will provide additional assistance.
