Installation barfs on VBA 7.1

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, SP1.


I'm installing SolidWorks Student Edition Academic Year 2015-2016.


Individual installation.


Just SolidWorks & help files.


Per the installation manager's direction, I addressed the KB3072630 Microsoft update by entering 1 in RemappedElevatedProxiesPolicy in Regedit.


SolidWorks barfed on the C++ portion at 1%.


Copied both installation discs to my hard drive because of the vc_redist issue. Downloaded from Microsoft both vc_redist files & replaced them.


Now the installation gets through the C++ portion of the installation.






It consistently aborts when installing VBA 7.1, cancelling the installation & generating logs (attached).



This looks like the problem area:


09:28:38InfoStep940"** INSTALLATION SUCCEEDED **"
09:28:41InfoStep910"{0: Installing} MSP: {1: C:\Users\Jason Bardis\Desktop\SW\PreReqs\VBA\vba71-kb2783832-x64.msp} (from {2: 00000-40000-1100-100}); command-line: {3: }

(ID {4: Microsoft_VBA_KB2783832}, lang {5: }, pcode {6: }, mode {7: 5}, upg = {8: }, f{9: 0}, costKB {10: 0})"

09:28:41ErrorStatus1560"***START DUMP OF WINDOWS INSTALLER DATA***"
09:28:41ErrorStatus1580"***END DUMP OF WINDOWS INSTALLER DATA***"
09:28:41ErrorStep1540"** Patch FAILED with code 1622"



But this page doesn't have any information code 1622: Installation FAQs | SOLIDWORKS



Any ideas?
