This is a most likely caused by Windows 10 Address space layout randomization (ASLR).

While Everything supports ASLR, the installer does not.

Please try one of the following methods:

Method 1
Install Everything with the MSI installer.

Method 2

If you wish to keep ASLR on as the default, please add the Everything Setup executable to the exclude list for ASLR:
  • From the Start menu, type in the following:
    defender
  • Click on Windows Defender Security Center.
  • Click the App & Browser control button on the left (second from the bottom)
  • Click Exploit Protection Settings.
  • Click the Program Settings tab.
  • Click Add program to customize.
  • Click Choose exact file path.
  • Select your Everything Setup executable file, for example Everything-1.4.1.895.x64-Setup.exe
  • Scroll down to Force randomization for images (Mandatory ASLR)
  • Check Override system settings.
  • Make sure it is Off.
  • Click Apply.
  • Click Yes for Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device.
Method 3

Install the portable version manually:
  • Download the portable version of Everything
  • Extract Everything.exe to C:\Program Files\Everything.
  • Run Everything.exe
  • Choose Install Everything Service if requested.
  • Choose Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything if requested.
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Make sure Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything is checked.
  • Make sure Everything Service is checked.
  • Check Start Everything on system startup (optional).
  • Check Desktop shortcut (optional).
  • Check Start menu shortcuts (optional).
  • Click OK.
  • Click Yes for Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device.
Method 4

Disable ASLR:
  • From the Start menu, type in the following:
    defender
  • Click on Windows Defender Security Center.
  • Click the App & Browser control button on the left (second from the bottom)
  • Click Exploit Protection Settings.
  • Change Force randomization for images (Mandatory ASLR) to: Off by default.
  • Click Yes for Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device.
  • Restart your computer.

Are there any plans to make installer ASLR friendly ?

Method 5.
Open PowerShell as Administrator
Set-ProcessMitigation -Disable ForceRelocateImages "Path to Everything Installation"

Yes, an ASLR friendly installer is in development.
