Solid Edge 2019 won't install on Win 7 x64

Hello,

 

Solid Edge 2019 refuses to install on Windows 7 x64 that meets the guidelines (8gb ram, 1440x900 screen resolution etc).

 

The installer unpacks, then falls over without an error message when it advises me that it must uninstall my existing ST9 which is installed on E: drive.

 

I've enclosed screengrabs of the issue. Any advice on how I can rectify this?

Yes, uninstall your existing Solid Edge ST9 first. 

 

You cannot install a different version of Solid Edge through the GUI installer when  another version of Solid Edge is already installed.

Thanks for the advice uk-dave,

 

Ah, I see...

 

The GUI installer appeared to offer to uninstall it for me, hence the confusion.

 

I'll give it a go shortly.
