      Please uninstall, then be sure delete the installation directory completely. Next, reinstall ANSYS Student, be sure to use right-click -> Run as administrator.  If you encounter the same error with installation of prerequisites, select No and see if the install will proceed. You can then run the prerequisite installations separately from the prereq directory.
