Windows 8.1 64-bit PL Pro, nVidia GTX 980Ti
Broken: official 2.79 (can't see spash screen, because it's an installation error)
Worked: official 2.78c and earlier
During the installation of Blender (blender-2.79-windows64.msi) installator asks for a path to previous installator (blender-2.78c-windows64.msi) and when I point it, it returns an error no. 2753. Se attached screenshots.
