I'm on a Dell xps8900 machine running windows 10 home.
Trying to install sw2016, sp04.
When I run the setup file, the installation manager window pops up but it's blank(just a banner image at top, blank whitespace below) and nothing else happens.
I found a previous forum entry that suggested changing the compatibility mode of setup to windows 7 but that doesn't work for sp04.
I also tried this registry DWORD suggestion Solidworks 2015 SP4 on windows 10 but that didn't help me either.
found it. the zip I had downloaded was "blocked" by windows. right click, properties, then click the unblock checkbox. then unzip it. install now works fine.
