I am trying to install Auto Hotkey on a windows 10 PC, and when I click the installer, a message pops up stating this software will not run on your PC, please check the manufacturer. Anyone have any tips or advicie on how to install the software?

Is this the 'Pro' or 'Server' version of Windows, that you're trying to install it onto? Perhaps it's a licensing restriction.

Take a look at your Event Viewer in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer (Windows Logs > Application Logs) to see if it gives you any more insight. Also, try right clicking the installer and 'Run as Administrator.'
