Installing FlippingBook Publisher - troubleshooting

As per our system requirements, FlippingBook Publisher requires Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1. Starting with Publisher 2021.3, it is not possible to install the software on Windows 7 without SP1 (Select the Start button > All programs > Windows Update.) To use Publisher on Windows 8, you will need to upgrade to Windows 8.1

  3. Go to C:\ProgramData (make sure that browsing hidden files and folders is enabled) and select all folders that look something like this {600CA65A-D984-45AD-B655-E096A0BCA272} and then delete them.

  4. Download our Publisher Cleaner, right-click on the downloaded file, and select Run as Administrator. Wait until the black window of the program closes. This will remove all remaining traces of your old installation except your projects.
  5. Now try to install FlippingBook Publisher again. In rare situations, antivirus software may block the installation. If the software still cannot be installed then please try again with antivirus software disabled.
