Can't install any version of MuseScore due to a feature being "on a network resource that is unavailable".
I'm trying to install the new MuseScore 3.6. (Specifically 22.214.171.1247915773-x86_64.)
I downloaded the .msi installer and try to run it, when I do, it gets to a stage where it says that it is "removing software", and pops upp an error box that reads:
The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'MuseScore-3.4.2-x86_64.msi'
Weird, I think, this installer really shouldn't need some random old one to install the new version, but ok. I track down that specific installer, and put it in my Downloads folder, and give it the path. I've tried giving it the path with the file name, and just the directory. In both cases it reacts as though the file isn't there.
Since it seems to be wanting to uninstall an old version of MuseScore, I'll just uninstall it myself, then. I try the normal uninstall method, and I get the same message, not letting me uninstall. Fine, I track down every MuseScore-related file and delete them myself, and try to install 3.6 again. Nope. Same error. Which means that I'm now stuck without any version of MuseScore installed, and no way to install one.
Is there a solution to this? Or maybe there is an installer that doesn't have to uninstall my previous version before installing a new one?
(Don't tell me to run as administrator. .msi files don't offer that, and will request admin rights when needed, which this installer does do. I have tried forcing it to run as admin, however, and as expected it makes no difference.)
