Installation Trouble Shoot Guide
  • If during the installation you should receive a 1925 error, claiming you do not have administrative privileges, abort the installation. Then locate the file you downloaded (Ex. GCP14-FULL.exe), right mouse click on the file click on  Run As Administrator.
  • You may have to turn “User Account Control” (UAC) OFF (Never notify) temporarily before installing. After verifying that the program has been installed, turn UAC back ON.  This setting is found in the Control Panel>User Accounts>Change User Account Control settings. A reboot may be required. This is more of an issue with Windows 7.
  • Windows Defender SmartScreen "Don't run" warning:
    • If you get this warning while installing or running GCP, just click the More info link and then 'Run anyway".
