Downloading Error Code -1073740791

      Hi all,

      I tried downloading HFSS via the Ansys Electronics Desktop Student. However, following the instructions given on the https://www.ansys.com/academic/students/ansys-electronics-desktop-student - installation steps, I receive an error at the end of the setup.exe (running it as administrator). My computer has 300 GB left of open memory, and had 16GB RAM so I doubt that is the problem. Also, I tried redownloading, repairing and restarting my computer without avail.

      The exact error happens with “ConfigureThisMachine.exe”, error code -1073740791:

      Please open an elevated CMD (rt-click on CMD and "run as admin") and run the following four commands:
      del /Q "%TEMP%\configurethismachine.*"
      del /Q /A:H "%TEMP%\configurethismachine.*"
      "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\AnsysEM21.2\Win64\config\ConfigureThisMachine.exe" -v -v --uninstall -i "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\AnsysEM21.2\Win64" --redirect-file c:\temp\ctmuninst.log
      ----wait a minute----
      "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\AnsysEM21.2\Win64\config\ConfigureThisMachine.exe" -v -v -i "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\AnsysEM21.2\Win64" --redirect-file c:\temp\ctminst.log
      Examine the resulting c:\temp\cdminst.log to see if return code is '0' --- success
