Why won't Win 10 defender allow DSM or DSE to install??

I downloaded both Design Spark Mechanical and Electrical and Windows defender will not allow installation of EITHER even with virus protection turned off???

Just another user here, but a couple of points:

1) I assume you downloaded them from the DesignSpark website here. If not, download them from here.

2) Did you try doing the install using Run as administrator?

3) Making sure you have enough space on your system. (Although if this was the problem, I think the installer will probably make it clear that is the reason.)
