Can't upgrade to a newer version of SQL monitor

ArtyArty Posts: 4 New member
We are currently on version and we are trying to upgrade to a newer version of SQL monitor but the installation crashed in the beginning with error 0xe0434352.
We have the same result when trying to install any newer version;;; 

In the event log, we see two errors in the following order:

    I finally managed to update it to version
    I'm not sure, but maybe the problem was that the user with whom I previously started the installation has a dot in the name.
    I started the installation with the user who started the "SQL Monitor Base Monitor" service ( before that I made it a local admin and this user had no dot in his name) and the installation started.
