Getting Error during Solidworks Installation - Please help.

I am facing some errors during Solidworks Installation.

The installation Manager encountered an error when creating this Registry key:

..........Key name

You must have administrative permission when running the Installation Manager.

Check  the permissions for this registry key using a registry editor or consult the System Administrator.

I tried to run the .exe file as Administrator but it was of no help.

If I press OK in the dialog box then it shows another error as follows:

Internal Error: The windows Installer for this product component did not run as expected: Install Execute.


If I again press OK & Resume further Installation then the 1st error comes again with a different registry name followed by the 2nd error on pressing OK.


I am trying to install Solidworks for a long time but every-time this error comes.

It is quite urgent now for me to get the installation completed.


Please guide how to solve this issue.

Thanks & Regards.
