I am trying to install Solidworks 2014 on virtual machine for Windchill Work Group Manager. I keep coming across the error (attached).
These are the steps I’ve attempted thus far:
- 1. Uninstall the existing VSTA installation from Add or Remove Programs (VSTA is Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications )
2. Rename following registry keys:
start by opening up Regedit.exe (typically found in C:\Windows\regedit.exe)
For 64 bit, browse to the following and rename them:
HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTAHost (rename this to VSTAHostOLD)
HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\VSTAHostConfig (rename this to VSTAHostConfigOLD)
- 3. Try to Install SolidWorks using Installation Manager again
Please let me know If you have any ideas as to how to resolve this?
