I ordered LR/CC through Amazon, received my activation key and downloaded. But when I tried to install the file I received the dreaded, "This app cannot run on your PC  To find a version for your PC contact the software publisher. I worked with Compatibility checker in properties to no avail. Yes I am running it as admin. Yes I have checked all posting on this (now help there).  I have found no events that relate to this message in the event viewer, though I will admit, I don't know much about that end of it, however; I have attempted to open the LR setup.exe several times, logged the time I have done so and found no events near that time.

I believe - for good reason - I have a corrupted install file.  I have been having issues with my wifi on my computer, and it was dropping in and out during the install and even then only installing at 3-500kbs, compared to the usual 7-13 Mbs.  I have since abandoned the wifi connection and am now connected directly to the network - no more issues.

Since I cannot run this install file under any option or permission I know of, I would like to get a clean copy of the file - which I should be able to do now. I'm assuming I need to get my existing corrupted LR file invalidated and be issued a new activation key, but how?

Just in case, here is my current System info:

I believe your last line says it all - "Running Windows 10 32 bit."

Lightroom requires a 64 bit OS.  See the system requirements here -
