nee help from expert here on solidworks 2016 installation. It says Failed to Execute Vsta.. thanks
Is this during the Composer install? Or SOLIDWORKS? This might be in the wrong forum.
Step 1 Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features. Uninstall Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Application
Step 2 Open Regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VSTAHost, right click and delete.
If you have this key, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VSTAHostConfig, delete also.
Now install your Solidworks and it will do a clean install of VSTA and no problems. This seems to be an issue lately with the software.
