Creo Parametric 9.0 setup.exe failing to run


Creo Parametric 9.0 setup.exe failing to run

I am attempting to install Creo 9 on my Windows 11 Pro 64bit (i7-10875H) laptop.

Running setup.exe (version 37.0.2022.72) as admin fails to run. 

Event viewer states:

Following another post's instructions (Solved: running setup.exe does nothing - Creo 8.0 - PTC Community) for Creo 8.0, I have disabled hypervisor. The issue still persists. 


I attempted to install it within a Windows 10 Pro Hypervisor VM on my computer, which was able to install Creo Parametric 9 successfully but immediately crashed upon making a new part file - I assume due to running inside a VM. 


Creo Parametric 8 installs and runs correctly on my machine, no errors when installing or creating parts.

Creo Parametric 9 also installs fine on my Surface Pro 8 running Windows 11 Home.


The issue is with installing Creo Parametric 9 on Windows 11 Pro specifically from what I understand. Are there any workarounds to install Creo Parametric 9 on Win 11 Pro successfully?


Article - "Is Creo Parametric supported on Windows 11":

These articles just tell me that Creo Parametric 9.0 is supported on Windows 11 Pro. Does not tell me any way to resolve setup.exe failing to run on a Windows 11 Pro Machine, which the PDF states is supported. Windows 11 Home is fine, however. 

For further information this is my Windows version

Version 22H2
Installed on ‎9/‎20/‎2022
OS build 22621.675
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22634.1000.0

I am aware that the PDF you linked states that Windows 11 Pro 21H2 is supported, not 22H2. However, this issue persisted before I updated on 21H2 as well. Creo 8 also installs fine on 22H2, just Creo 9's setup fails to run entirely. 


Creo 9 also installs fine on, on another device, so it is not 22H2, but rather some issue with Creo 9's installer on specifically Win 11 Pro
