Google is your friend

From the bottom post:
I know already what caused this. I disabled windows firewall service, so just enable it -> install -> disable it again

That’s in response to one of the error codes – the first one, pertaining to the firewall. Try that and report back.

Firewall has not been on ” windows cannot start firewall service ”

@sandystrachan That’s what he said. Turn it on, install, turn it off.

” windows cannot start firewall service ” that means she can’t turn it on or off !

@sandystrachan Has she checked that the services for running the firewall is active and running? It sounds like they are not.
