    Problem installing solidworks 2014 student edition on 64-bit Windows 8.1

    Itamar George


      I have a problem installing solidworks 2014 student edition on a computer running Windows 8.1 64bit and not just on one computer, but some computers with 64-bit Windows 8.1.


      The user has administrator privileges, the installation begins and everything seems fine but the middle of the installation error that the user has permission and must login as an administrator. I tried to make a run as administrator but without success and still get the error:


      the installation manager encountered an error when creatins this registry key :. you Must have administrative ....


      I tried to disable the antivirus and firewall but it did not help,


      I also tried to download version 2015 but it does not work and you receive the same error. What could be the problem?
