I'm having the same issue on a clean build of Win8.1 Pro, and I have used revo to remove evernote and clean but still no success.  I have tried to install 5.8.8, 5.8.11 and 5.8.12 and all of them give me the same message can not write value to key.  Any suggestions?

The screenshot seems to be Internet Explorer related. The install program can't add the EN webclipper in the IE's tools menu I guess (via a registry key). Something special with your IE maybe ?


On win7, I run install as admin on a limited session, no trouble with EN (I had some programs which failed installation this way).

But maybe Win8 requires you install directly from an admin session to add this registry key.
