Thank you for reporting this error.

Yes, installing Skyline-Daily does not work for me either.
It appears that our installation folder is missing some files including "BaseCommon.dll".

You might have better luck with the "unplugged" installer:
https://skyline.ms/wiki/home/software/Skyline/daily/page.view?name=install-disconnected-64

I will try to find someone to fix the regular installer.

I believe I have fixed the Skyline-Daily installer.
It should work for you now.
