Details masked out to protect the owner of this installer

For developers: This is an error code from an installer built using the QTIFW framework. See rest of article.

Everyone else:

This means that an error happened while installer was extracting a zip file. E_FAIL stands for extraction fail in this case. This most commonly happens when you don’t have enough system RAM.

Quit all your other applications, even restart your computer to get rid of dead RAM, and try the installer again. It could be trying to extract a large zip file and can’t fit the file into memory.

Another possibility is permissions.

In that case, the easiest thing to do is to just run as an administrator.

Right click -> Run as administrator
