Solidworks installation error

Question asked by Jacob D on Sep 28, 2014

Hello. I am trying to install Solidworks 2014 on windows 7. I get to about 25-30% of the installation and it fails and gives me this error:


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

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.

When contacting Technical Support about installation issues, you will need to provide the installation log files available in this directory. Use the button below to save your logs as a zip file for sending to your support representative.

I do have administrative permission, and I have tried it on several administrative accounts, however I get the same error every time. Any ideas on how to fix this?
