Hi Shrikar,

thanks for your replay.

I followed the steps but found that NET Framework 3.5 was unchecked by default.

any way I unchecked NET Framework 4.6 too, but same error!

the installation bar just rolls back before it's complete and says " setup ended **** " with a message box saying " Fatal error during installation ". and no error codes.

and I don't remember to face this before with any software or windows version.

 Thanks again.
