Fing desktop stopped working for me the other day, so I tried re-installing.  The install process gets about half way through then just dies.  Anyone else having this issue?  Any work arounds available?

    I tried to solve this issue by uninstalling and trying again.  Even after a reboot it still failed.  Turns out there is a auto running service that has to be manually stopped.  This allowed the installation to continue.  
    I suggest that the installation process be changed to include better error handling.  Pop up a message saying "please make sure the fing service is stopped"  or "we had a problem installing, please check X".  Just disappearing half way through the process is amateur hour.
