Hamachi Install failure

I have a user that was using Hamachi with a previous IT company, but they now wish to use it with a different network/LMI account. The first machine I wished to do was their Windows Server 2008. I do not wish to just uninstall the program first as I received an error when trying to reinstall, so do not want to leave the server with no access.


I have downloaded the Hamachi.msi file from various sources but I receive the same message when choosing the Reinstall option.


"A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file E:\hamachi-update"


Wherever I put the install file I get the same error with the path of the file reflecting the file location.


I have run the file to create a log file of the install. As it is a long logfile, I'll include the message from the end of the document.

Can anyone suggest a way around this?
