Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

It sounds like an odd issue. I think we are going to need more info to help. This should get us started:

What version of Windows are you using?
Can you check if you get any installer logs? Example steps for getting logs outlined in the MSI (Windows only) installation issues section of this LINK. If you get a set of logs and are comfortable posting them, zip them up and attach to this thread. They might provide a clue about what is going on.

Hi JDK80,

Please also ensure that you are running the .msi as system administrator.

If that doesn't solve it, then a more detailed version of the link that 0xDEADBEEF provided can be found here:


Please run through the first steps and provide the logs.
