Only option given is "... Do you want to remove DSA?" After agreeing program still does not install. Have also used Intel's DSAUninstaller program with no change in results. Control Panel > Programs does not show any version of DSA installed. Any attempt to install always results int the "Do you want to remove DSA" option at the start of installation.

1) clear your browser cache

2) uninstall ALL versions of IDSA

3) run the uninstall cleanup tool

4) reboot

5) install IDSA

Doc,

Thank you for your efforts, but after following your steps the results are the same. Step 2 locates nothing DSA to remove. According to Control Panel > Programs there are no versions of IDSA installed.

Again thank you.

In what country are you located?

What version of Windows 10? 1903? 1909?

What anti-virus do you have? Can you temporarily disable real-time checking?

Also, IDSA accesses localhost on posts 28385-28389. It also connects to www.intel.com, downloadcenter.intel.com, and downloadmirror.intel.com, all on port 443 (HTTPS). Make sure you are not blocking any of those ports.

Are you using WIndows firewall or another?

Tell me that both WD and MBAM are NOT running concurrently.

Using regedit and following DSAuninstaller step by step, found that the registry entry "LOCALMACHINE\Software|Intel\SUR\Installers\QUEENCREEK" was being reported as deleted, when in fact it was not. Manually deleted the registry entry, restarted computer and everything works as advertised.
