    This is a quirk in the installer. During this step the installer runs a deep scan of all your directories to find any existing copies that may be on your drive. You'll have to be patient and wait for this step to complete.

    As for Windows 10 support, make sure to select custom setup and skip the data access components, specifically the ADO and RDS feature, as leaving it enabled will lead to Setup getting stuck at the end and failing to complete.
