Won't install in 8.1

Arghhhh I just cannot get open CPN 4.0.0 to set up in windoes 8.1..... it downloads Ok but when I try and Install, it simply throws up it's little blue "thinking" Circle and stays like that forever.... I have tried re-downloading, even the compatibility troubleshooter, but without success. I have done a search on this forum but not found the answer..... I can't believe I am the only person with this issue??
I'm sure this has been discussed, sorry for repetition, but I have tried to find a thread on this.....
Any help is much appreciated,

Re: Won't install in 8.1

And if you are the only one ? The black swan...

4.0.0 has been installed in thousands of PCs and a lot run 8.1
We have two of them for example.

The installer is from the official OCPN site?
Download OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage

When starting the update a window asking for the permission "to change things on the PC" from Windows should pop-up. And next the installer asking for the language to use.

Be sure that there no window hidden that asks for some input or permission.
Virus checkers to disable?
