First asks me

A Windows reboot is pending from a previous installation. Some components may fail to install if you do not reboot first. We strongly recommend you cancel the installation and reboot.


Continue the installation?

I have rebooted several times so I continue.

Install gets t 1% does and error pops up.


The executable file "C:\Users\mackt\Documents\SOLIDWORKS Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2016 x64 SP02\PreReqs\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe" /q:a /c:"msiexec /i vcredist.msi REBOOT=ReallySuppress /q" did not install successfully.


What is my problem?
