Just got this popup upgrading from 6.8. However, I waited some time to see if launchbox.exe would close on its own and it eventually did.

Then I clicked OK to continue. Then I got a UAC prompt asking me to allow dxsetup.exe to make changes, I allowed it, and the install finished fine.

Looking forward to trying this version!

Unfortunately, going from Options back to the platform list still takes a long time for me in BB, even if I don't make a single change.
