Trouble loading solidworks 17-18 student edition on my laptop?

I have recently installed solidworks 17-18 on my laptop. I had the 15-16 version previously installed and that worked fine without any problems. Solidworks Electrical 2D and solidworks visualize 2017 both open and work fine on my laptop too.


When I go to run solidworks it freezes when 'Initializing VBA Engine' and a dialog box pops up saying 'Failed to initialize Visual Basic for Apps, equations and macros will not work. Are you low on disc space?' I have checked the disc space and there's roughly 50GB free.


I have checked the specs of my laptop and there shouldn't be any problems with it being able to run it. Any ideas/help on how to solve this problem?
