Particle Workbench Install Error - Visual Studio and Workbench ext both fail


#1

Win 7 x64 install error:

Visual Install Error:

#2

As an update to this, if you click back and then next again, the install succeeds the second time for both. Very Odd.


#3

I just had a similar failure, fresh install attempt on fresh(ish) Win 10:

This machine is behind a corporate firewall with an outbound proxy, in case that makes a difference to you (machine is set up, no other apps need to be proxy-aware.)

Going back and trying again, did not help.

Additionally, clicking the “report this error” link just opens the forum in a browser, that’s all.
