Error with validation of installation llparker7765  2019-01-17
 

Hi,

update a few minutes after posting this: the regular non-beta version of Skyline 32-bit DOES work, so it seems to be an issue with the Skyline Daily 32-bit install

I've had a version of Skyline Daily 32-bit working for at least a year on my Windows 7 (with, as far as I know, all current Windows updates) that's installed in Parallels Desktop on my Mac. I'm trying now to update my installation to the newest version of Skyline Daily (32-bit). I've tried both the online installer and the offline installer, and get the same error with each: it says it "Application validation did not succeed. Unable to continue" after installation, so the install doesn't complete. Am I missing something crucial? The detailed error message it gives is this:

Yes, it looks like there is a problem with the 32 bit Skyline-Daily installer.
I get this same error when I try to install this on Windows 10.
We will try to figure out what is going wrong.
