    SolidWorks Educational Edition 2014 Fails to INstall

    Patrick Bisson

      I'm trying to install my brand new SolidWorks Educational Edition 2014 (from the DVD or even from a copy on my HDD). But, when it get's to about 35%, the installation fails with a "SolidWorks Installation Manager" error dialog that reads: "Internal error: The Windows Installer for this product component did not run as expected: Vsta. Contact Technical Support"


      Now, this is a Windows 7 x64 SP1 OS running on a Toshiba Satellite A665 with 12MB ram, Intel I7 cpu with more than 300GB HDD space. I've got my antivirus program turned off and I've got a working internet connection.


      Do you think someone could help me out with this problem? I have an installation log available if anyone wants to examine it. For now though, I'll just attach a screen grab of the error dialog. Has anyone seen this problem before?


      I really need to get SolidWorks working! I have projects to do and things to make!
