I have Windows 7 SP1 so I think it is not a problem.
RMB on computer and choose properties, please post that
also can you please post a screenshot of the error message
other relevant info that would be helpful:
1. are you trying to install 32-bit or 64-bit
2. are you trying to install the student or commercial version
I had that error too. among others
Turned out to be a . NET problem
there should be a prereqs folder in your download or on the DVD.
run the exe files in all 3 of the VCRedist folders, they will install or repair depending on status.
x64 for 64bit and x86 for 32bit
and then run both files in the dotNetFx folder
there was also a step to turn off .NET 3.5 in the control panel restart your computer, then turn .net 3.5 on again.
hope this helps
I suffered from the same problem.
I tried this, right click the sw setup> properties> compatability tab> Check in the 'run this prog' and give it windows 7.
And now if you try to install, it will tell u that it is Win7 Sp0. Again go to the compatability tab and uncheck the run this prog, then try to install.
This is how it worked for me.
