Prepping Up Your Computer for Successful Installation
It is best practice to pause or disable any real-time protection of your Anti-Virus
Anti-Virus programs are known for blocking processes during the installation of SOLIDWORKS
If you are unable to pause or disable the real-time protection only, you might need to disable the Anti-Virus program as a whole.
This will only be needed for the duration of the install. Enable the program after the installation as you want to be protected from threats.
Please consult your IT department if you are uncomfortable with making this change.
