Try running cimfcleanregistry17.exe. The default location for this file is in C:\Program Files\Siemens PLM Software\Factory Programs 2017\Program. This will ensure that all of your previous registry entries for the Factory products are removed. After you run this, reload the menus by typing FACTORY in the command window (do not use the CUI command to load the menus). This will make sure all trusted paths are set correctly.

Thank you very much for your workaround recommendation.
