Solidworks 2016 won't open

I just installed Solidworks 2016 on a brand new workstation running Windows 10 Professional.  When I go to start Solidworks, the window asking me to activate the product opens up.  I say 'next' to activate and it brings me to the next window to choose which products to activate and how to activate (automatically, or manually via email - for what it's worth I have tried both methods).  I say 'next' and the next window shows the activation has succeeded.  When I click 'finish' the Solidworks window closes.  Solidworks shows up briefly in the task manager during this.  No error messages are shown on the screen.  When I try to open Solidworks again it brings me right back to product activation.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a couple times and nothing has changed.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
