Yes, I am also getting similar issue.
Attaching the screenshot.

Is there a solution to install LabOfThings?

Same here.

I am running Windows 7 SP1 x64 though.

I get error the following error when trying to run the service manually.

1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

FIXED

.NET 4.5 needs to be installed first.

Best way to get it go to the Watchdog service folder and run HomeOS.Hub.Watchdog.exe manually. It will tell you its missing and to download it.

C:\Program Files (x86)\LabOfThings\Hub\output\Watchdog (64 Bit)
C:\Program Files\LabOfThings\Hub\output\Watchdog (32 Bit)
