Technical Area: Crash

Hi everyone,

Upgrading from LN 8.5.2 FP3 to LN 8.5.3.

Everytime I try to install, even fresh by deleting lotus folders, I get the following error:

"The launcher failed with an error. refer to C:\Users\shogan\AppData\Local\Lotus\Notes\Data\workspace\logs\rcplauncher.log for more information.

The log details:

I have also rebooted PC, turned off non-essential apps, etc. But all to no avail.

Any help appreciated.
