PADS 9.1 doesn't install

After further investigation and trying to install PADS 9.1 on 2 other Win 7 machines and even a Windows 10 lap top machine I still have errors: The errors read as follows:

1.  Error creating start menu entry for Batch tool.

2.  Error creating start menu entry for Mentor Install.

3.  Error creating start menu entry for Mentor Uninstall.

Again, I have PADS 9.1 running on my primary Win 7 machine as well as PADS 9.4 and all is well after installing them more then a year ago with my current license file.

Just to see if it would installed, I installed PADS 9.3 on my Win 10 lap top machine and everything loaded fine with my current license file except it will only run DxDesigner and PADS logic in demo mode. I also have an older  XP machine where I have PADS 9.1 and PADS 9.3 loaded and they both open and run great including DxDesigner and Power Logic.

Why doesn't PADS 9.1 install on my 2 other Win 7 machines but installed and runs fine on my primary Win 7 and XP machine. Also, 9.3 installs and runs on my Win 10 lap top machine but runs DxD and P/L in demo mode only.

 

Thanks

Jim
