I am having a hell of a time loading the student version of SW 2016. It loaded once, albeit badly; telling me that "Microsoft SQL server failed to install." Subsequent attempts at repair failed. Each time I attempted to repair the install it gave me the same error. I decided to uninstall and reinstall Solidworks only to have it give me the same error message. I attempted again to try and download and install (http://www.SolidWorks.com/SEK ) and now it continuously tells me that Solidworks does not support installation on machines running Windows NT (I have windows 7 running currently).
I absolutely have no idea what to do and I need to have this program running for school. Any help resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
