Trying to install Quartus Prime on a Windows 10 laptop. Downloaded install files directly because Akamai downloader failed. I have to get an admin to grant installation permission. When I start the Setup exe file (run as administator), it takes several minutes for the admin permission pop-up (Avecto). After IT guy puts in password, granting permission, no installer windows occur, even after waiting overnight! And yet, the installer is taking up 30+% of CPU. What's interfering with the installation?
I can't disable anti-virus, and neither can my local admin. He's looking into the possibility of running the installation from inside Avecto.
I'd like to point out that installing Mentor Expedition was trouble-free, in spite of the anti-virus SW running, so it's possible to install applications if the installer behaves less like a virus. FWIW, the AV is McAfee, Data Exchange 4.1, Agent 5.5, Endpoint 10.6
Finally installed successfully after someone else logged into LT - without disabling anti-virus. Something about my first unsuccessful attempt blocked subsequent attempts. Registry, maybe?
