      Hi there, I'm having trouble installing Solidworks 2016 on Windows 10. When I first run setup.exe, I am met with the below error;

      When I try to install using the default option in the Solidworks Electrical Options of "Use an existing SQL Server database" and "Connect using Windows Authentication" (see below screenshot);

      When I change the option to "Install new instance of SQL Server" (See below);

      And try to run the installation, it gets to about 4% and then gives me the following error, that SQL Server fails to install.

      If anyone has any ideas on what to do it would be much appreciated as I cannot figure it out.
