register_i386_SldShellExtServerExe

I receive this error and am unable to install solidworks 2015 - 2016 veteran student edition. I'm pretty sure it is the same version as the regular student version, but just in case.. My laptop does not have a DVD/CD rom drive so I mounted the ISO onto a flash drive.

 

I've been trying to install this for the last couple days, scouring the internet, but to no avail am I able to find a solution.

 

I've tried the windows 8 compatibility mode. I've set my RemappedElevatedProxiesPolicy to 1 and turned off UAC.

 

I've tried deleting registry keys that contain solidworks on it.

 

I've tried accessing the links from this post: Error: "Internal error: The Windows Installer for this product component did not run as expected: register_i386_SldShellExtServerExe."

 

I seem to get the same error during installation. At about 23% I receive the following "internal error: The Windows Installer for this product component did not run as expected: register_i386_SldShellExtServerExe."

 

Can someone please help me fix this issue?
