I am receiving this error during installation at approximately 63%


"The Installation Manager encountered an error when creating this registry key: Class.

You must have administrative permission when running the Installation Manager. Check the permissions for this registry key using a registry editor or consult the system administrator."


I am logged in on my computer as an administrator.

I am doing an individual install of SolidWorks 2011 SP2.0 64-bit

I am running on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.


I had a previous version of solidworks 2011 sp 2.0 but had issues uninstalling it. I ended up having to delete all of the solidworks folders and also the solidworks files in the registry.  I then used CCleaner.  Any suggestions?


I also attached the logs.
