Andrzej, I have found the problem with the download routine and have a workaround. The problem is in DWGEditor. There is a file "autorun.inf" that will not be extracted and copied into the correct folder correctly. The whole download/extract routine falls over when it gets to this point.
I have downloaded all the files manually excluding dwgeditor and installed successfully. Remember to remove dwgeditor from the install list before installing. Of course, you still have a problem if you need dwgeditor but at least you will have SolidWorks running.
Thanks. That was it. Once I deselected DWGEditor everything went OK.
