Does not support target platform

First HELLO!,
I’ve tried installing the Firewall program on 3 different operating systems. This firewall software has a glitch for alot of peoples operating systems (computers) This is not a install problem it’s a software issue. Just because the majority of computers have a good install doesn’t mean the other computers have been installed improperly. You see the same problem. ( ODD ) " does not support target platform " I took the time installing this software download 32BIT & 64BIT and I get the same results time after time. I have a very excellent knowledge with computers and building systems to.
SORRY Comodo you have a software glitch and very noticeable as you see. To many mine and other computers having samo, samo.
I really think your firewall program will solve alot of my problems involving my security. I started with DOS installs Windows 3.1 and graduated to Windows 8 installs.
NOW, it’s your turn ( baby) ie problem. Look elsewhere into your software and edit ( correct ) the issues that you’ll find there.
PLEASE, fix it so all I and other computers can install your Comodo Firewall software. I really want Comodo Firewall.
Thank You Richard (truckerich)

Which OS’s were you trying to install on?

I notice that you mentioned Windows 8. Windows 8 isn’t supported yet.

On what OS’s are you installing it? I have a quadruple boot with XP SP3, Vista SP2, Win 7 SP1 and Win 8 CP and I don’t get the problem.

Failing over various platforms indicates a common denominator. The question is if and how to determine this.

Could you start with removing all traces of previously installed security programs? Since you appear to be an experienced user I give you the long and thorough method. Not all uninstallers do a proper job. And left over applications, drivers or services can cause all sort of “interesting effects”.

Following are two of my tutorials to make sure there are no more left overs.

Use existing removal tools

Try using removal tools for those programs. Here is a list of removal tools for common av programs: ESET Knowledgebase .

Otherwise do a Google search with terms “removal tool” and * name of product or vendor*.

For a more technical hands on approach (for advanced users only):

We are gonna take a look to see if there are some old drivers of your previously uninstalled security programs are still around. First run "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1’ without the quotes from the command prompt.

Then go to Device Manager → View → show hidden devices → now look under Non Plug and Play drivers → when you see a driver that belongs to your previous security programs click right → uninstall —> reboot your computer. You need to Google the driver’s names to see to what programs they belong to. You don’t want to uninstall Microsoft/Windows related drivers of course; some Microsoft drivers may show up as non active please don’t uninstall them. It is best to make a system restore point before this of course.

When the problem persists make sure there are no auto starts from your previous security programs. Download Autoruns and run it.

This program finds about all auto starts in Windows. This tool can therefore seriously damage Windows when not handled properly. After starting push Escape and go to Options and choose to hide Windows and Microsoft entries, to include empty locations and then push F5 to refresh.

Now check all entries to see if there are references to your previous security program. When you find them untick them. After unticking reboot your computer and see what happens.
