failed to cache the downloaded installer. Error: 0x80070005

I have the latest ver of win10.


Simply cannot get Google Earth to install.  I get the above error.


GE runs in Google Chrome however.


This has been going on ever since I put up this totally new Win10 install - on a totally new hard drive. 


I have found no useful help anywhere.  Can anyone help even if only directing to a place where they might specialise in such as this?

Do you also have a problem when using the Direct Installer? You should download it and run it with admin privileges.

Direct Installer 32bit:

Direct Installer 64bit:

Best regards
Yes, I've tried that, again and again. I downloaded it again at your prompting and that made the 7th one of them. I do it again and again lest there be some minute difference in the versions or something - maybe just appealing to black magic - but, whatever, it doesn't help. Error code 2 again.
