Issue with installing NodeXL Pro


Hello and Merry Christmas.

I am a NodeXL Pro user. Today I tired to open the template, but I did not manage to do so because of the "Update Office Customization" error. I decided to uninstall NodeXL and install the Pro version (downloaded from again. I did clean the "C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0" folder before installing the Pro version again. However, now I cannot install NodeXL Pro because of the "Exception reading manifest from" error. Error details are the following:


************** Exception Text **************
System.Deployment.Application.InvalidDeploymentException: Exception reading manifest from the manifest may not be valid or the file could not be opened. ---> System.Deployment.Application.InvalidDeploymentException: Manifest XML signature is not valid. ---> System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicException: SignatureDescription could not be created for the signature algorithm supplied.

Btw, I do not have problems with installing NodeXL Basic.

Could you please help me with resolving this problem. I would be very grateful to you for this.
