      I have tried for weeks to update to 14.0, receiving cryptic failure messages ("failed to register").

      I uninstalled 13.<mumble> via the Windows control panel and attempted to install 14.0, which

      I got the message

      So I tried to find a support number, and got referred to this forum instead. A search on "error 1041"

      in the forum shows discussions going back to version 11.<mumble> along with people still seeing

      uninformative error messages.

      Has anyone had any success with installing 14.0????  What did you do to succeed?
