Hello. I installed RoboHelp 2020. But after opening the program a new window appears , where I want to click on "Start free trial", I always get the message "An error occurred". If i close the window the whole RoboHelp program shutts down. If there is someone, who solved the problem or had the same problem, i would be thankful. Best regards.

Did you install with admin rights?

 

Are you working in an environment with strict controls on internet access?

 

Please use the photo icon to insert images within the post. Some supporters will not open attachments for security reasons and f you do download, you are then not seeing the image inline with the text. Then thanks to a quirk of this forum you have to close the thread and reopen it before you can reply. Crazy but that's the way it is.

Maybe try again a few times. I have noticed the forums are slow to respond today so perhaps it's just failing to respond quickly enough.

 

I am assuming you haven't previously installed 2020 as a trial. I think the response is different if that is the issue.

 

After that I think you will have to contact Adobe support. techcomm@adobe.com if you want to email or try phoning.

Yes i contacted the support already. But no answer until now. I downloaded the zip file (free demo version). Unpacked it and startet the setup.exe. It should not be a problem, if the unpacked zip file is not in the installation-folder, right? Thanks

Correct, the unzipped installation files should not be in the destination installation folder. If you run the setup.exe as an admin and you are logged into your machine as an admin, the only other issue is that something in your corporate environment is blocking RH's "phone home" action to register your Adobe ID.
btw - you know that this forum ISN'T Adobe Support, right? It's just a user-to-user group. If you are still stuck, give the RH folks a buzz at tcssup@adobe.com.

It depends on where the unpacked zip file is located when you run Setup.exe.

 

From what you have said, I would try uninstalling, rebooting and then installing from unzipped folder. That should ideally be on the same drive as Program Files but not within it.
