That error is 0x80070005 - Access is denied

Is your system fully up to date and are you sure you're running the installer with elevated privileges (which should happen automagically)?

Thanks. As far as I know the system is fully up to date. Is there any specific related patch that I need to check? The installer runs with elevated privileges too.

You could try manually downloading the appropriate from here and then running it from an elevated prompt with the /log <path-to-logfile> flag and examining the log file. The log file can be quite voluminous and I can't really tell you to look for other than text such as "error".

Thanks again. VC_redist.x64 downloaded from Microsoft installed without problem and now I have 3 versions of Visual C++ 2015 on my laptop, but still when I try installing Wireshark 4.0.4, it fails to the same error.

I downloaded Wireshark-win64-4.0.4.msi and that installed without any problem. Just to update the case.
