QGIS 3.4 Not Installing
|Affected QGIS version:||3.4.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows 7 Enterprise Service Pack 1||Easy fix?:||No|

I have downloaded QGIS-OSGeo4W-3.4.0-1-Setup-x86_64.exe and run it. Everything appears to run just fine and the installer tells me that "QGIS 3.4.0 'Medeira' has been installed on your computer."
However, as far as I can find it has not been.
There is no QGIS 3.4 folder in the C:Program Files folder. There is no shortcut added to the Start menu. When I do a search for qgis-bin then only exectuables that show up are for 2.18 and 3.2.
I have zero clue what is going on.
I have re-downloaded the installer from http://qgis.org/downloads/QGIS-OSGeo4W-3.4.0-1-Setup-x86_64.exe

- Status changed from Open to Closed
It was an admin issue.
Apparently, our IT department changed their permissions policy so that users no longer have admin rights. I got with my IT tech and he installed it as admin and everything worked fine.
That being said, if there is a way to check for that, some feedback or warning about not being admin would be nice. As it was there was zero feedback that anything went wrong.
