Resolution

UPDATED: April 12, 2017

Check for any previous version of Encom PA via Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

Also check for and remove any Encom PA folders under C:\Program Files (x86)\Encom. 

The version 2013 Encom PA will create a folder directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Encom\Encom Discover PA (Must be deleted or renamed)

Please remove the old Encom PA Discover folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Encom\Encom PA).

Try installation file again after you remove these files and folders.
