Cannot install 15-16 Student Edition.

Question asked by Peter Liccardello on Mar 31, 2016

Cannot install 15-16 Student Edition. Just received the DVD pkg.  Running Win 10 on fully compatible system.  Tried the registry value/word suggested edit solution to no avail.  Continue to get aborted installation messages and processes (see ref 1 & 2 below).  Checked WinUpdate history, no record of KB3072630.  Upgraded to Win10 within last 60 days.  What next?
