    windows 10 installation 2016 sp04 problem, hangs with blank installation manager window

    Andrew Meyer

      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.

      Any thoughts?

      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.
