So ... you should have kept notes last time...

You asked the same question about 3.28 on 9 Dec 2021.  Someone gave you
some advice; maybe it helped?

Did you check that the installer you downloaded is complete (which you'd
do by checking it has the expected size - which the download page only
lists approximately) and hash (which is described in an adjacent file)?

If those are ok, I'd be looking - in event logs probably - for signs
that the installer .exe began to run and then had some sort of error.
