Problems with down-grading Solidworks.


Hi y'all.

The past 6 months I had Solidworks 2013 Premium on my laptop.
Now my school changed everything, and they decided to work with Solidworks 2012/2013 Student Access Kit.

I thought I would be easy to 'downgrade' the 2013 premium version to the 2012/2013 student version... NOT.

There is just one message that's still coming back: "The Installation Manager ecountered an error when creating this registry key: SolidWorks Office Installed. You must have administrative permission for this registry key using a registry editor or consult the system administrator. When contacting ..."

I've found the key by a registry editor, but I don't know if I have to change this key (or something) anyway.

I hope you guys can help me out, thanks in advance!

p.s. Sorry for my bad English.
