Why Can’t I Install My H&R Block Tax Software?

If you’re having problems installing H&R Block software at home, keep this information in mind:

  • Allow the program to install to the hard drive location that’s automatically selected by the software installer.
  • You’ll need administrative privileges to install the software. You might not have the necessary permissions to update the H&R Block Tax Software if you’re using a workplace computer or laptop.
  • Recent Windows updates that haven’t been completely installed can cause installation problems. Restart your computer and try installing again, especially if you’ve just updated Windows.
  • Installation can fail if you have any antivirus software running. Disable these programs and try installing again.
