Solidworks fails to install

When I try to install it, it reaches about 1%, and then this error message comes up:

 

The executable file "E:\PreReqs\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe" /q:a /c:"msiexec  /i vcredist.msi REBOOT=ReallySuppress /q" did not install succesfully.

 

Any ideas? I think it may have something to do with the fact that I had to custom enable hibernate on my computer (normally it just shuts down or sleeps).

 

I think it may also have something to do with the fact that I haven't been able to install any other stuff for a while because other applications cannot access apdata, or soemthing of the sort. (will get exact error message, gimme a minute)
