Hello, I'm having trouble installing Solidworks on my temporary laptop. I'm waiting for a part on my workstation and I'm forced to use my backup laptop.  I understand it doesn't meet the recommended specs, but there is an issue installing it.  Below are the specs, only helpful comments please.  I only need to create a few simple parts until my workstation is fixed, nothing heavy.  Attached is the error message I get after it has been going through the install process for a few minutes.  I tried installing it using compatibility settings with windows 7 and windows vista and running the setup an an administrator but no luck.  Thanks in advance!!!
