    Looks good, but sadly the control panel fails to get any data from your servers with an error about a badly formed command and that I should check the proxy setting s in App.config which I cant possibly do as this is a self extracting installer. I am in China and there always seems to be a problem, with the installers you provide.

    Sorry, but we do not face this issue at our end.
    Are you using any firewall or proxy, if yes then please disable it and try again?
    If you still face the issue then please share your environment details and system configuration so that we can further investigate this issue.

    In the meantime, you can also install the product via the offline installer of the latest version. The link is given below:

    This is the error lorin.kundert is talking about:

    Could not connect to https://prod-cdn.grapecity.com/c1installer/webinstaller/data/c1controlPanel.json.
    Something went wrong while reading Products list.
    Please check below.
    Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: . Path '', line 0, position 0.
    If you are running behind a proxy, please change the following in the app.config file.

    We don't make use of a proxy.
    The link works when I paste it into the browser.
    I quickly opened the old C1Live installer which was able to get the data back fine.

    I've tried reinstalling it but it's not letting me uninstall the Control Panel either as it crashes out.

    Thank you, yes. This is working.

    I did have this error message but everything seems to be installed just fine.
    "Error Unzipping C:\Users\pnunn\AppData\Local\Temp\f964d923-efa9-4a5f-886a-2b406089c200\fd452.7z:-2.
    But you can still go ahead using the installed products."

    Thanks for the quick turnaround.
