Unable to install solidworks on clean windows 7

I've been experiencing this problem for the past few weeks.

 

I tried installing solidworks 2012 sp 4.0 x64 immediately after reinstalling windows.

I have two issues:

 

First, when I run setup.exe, I get a white-blank page where the install is supposed to guide you through.  This is not the major problem, as I am able to bypass it by directly running setup.exe in the swwi folder.

 

The major problem:  When the install is nearing completion, I get Error 1721, which is associated with sldshellserverexe using the regserver command.

 

I am using the student edition that I downloaded off my schools website.

 

Is there anything else I can do?
