Solid Edge 2D won’t install on XP with UAC Error

Situation:  Solid Edge 2D won’t install on a Windows XP in the domain where UAC is turned on.  I know what you are asking yourself, hey Matt Windows XP doesn’t even have UAC right?  Correct, it was introduced with Vista.  In our Domain though it still set the registry value for UAC on windows XP client machines.  You must make a registry change to:


Change the DWORD value for EnableLUA temporarily to zero instead of one.  This will allow the installation to happen.
