Cannot install SQL Source Control after failed update


I was using SQL Source Controll and SQL Search for more then a year. During a recent upgrade of SQL Source Control it failed. From that time I'm unable to install it again. I've tried to uninstall all RedGate software, restart computer, using Run As Administrator on installation file, install new and old version of SQL Source Control and/or SQL Search but without success.

Installation fails with the following error:
"MSI returned failure code InstallFailure
Service 'Redgate Client' (RedGateClient) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."

Additionally after the installation there is only a single file named '.rgupdate_bad_5.4.3' in "c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Red Gate\Shared Client" folder. Deleting the file and/or RedGate folder doesn't help with further installations.

I have also checked that in system Services dialog there is no Redgate Client service.

    I've received some help from the support team so I'll paste the solution here for any other people having the same problem.

    My problem has been solved by running the following command from administrative command prompt:
    netsh http add iplisten

    I had the same issue. I had to remove all my Redgate apps and manually remove all entries in the Registry for 'Redgate' and 'Red Gate'. I tried to install Source Control first and that kept failing with the error above, so tried the netsh http add iplisten I installed SQL Compare with success and then tried Source Control again and it worked. I noticed SQL Compare also installed the SSMS Integration pack which may have helped.
