4.0.4 install errors - destroys host networking
|Reported by:||ebonweaver||Owned by:|
At least in the case of an upgrade install, the latest 4.0.4 installer kicks this error when installing network drivers: Error Renaming Connection Cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different name.
The install seems to finish, though Windows kicks the typical "this didn't install properly" dialogue. However, networking on the host is then broken, the network location is damaged beyond Windows ability to repair. In other words, your installer just bricked my machine until I apparently figure out how to repair the destruction of my network card/drivers/configuration.
