Pega Personal edition 8.1

I am trying to install Pega personal edition 8.1 in windows 10. When I try running install.bat the command prompt opened and closed immediately. I also tried running install.bat as administrator, but doesn't work. Ant help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Try opening the command window first and navigate to the directory where the install.bat is located.  Then run install.bat and take note of any errors that show up.  Also check to see if the log file for the install has logged any details.

There are few things which you can take care of :- 

1) Stop your AntiVirus.

2) Should have admin Access and allow Java to run.
3) If you have already Started the installation and it got failed, then you have to delete the Directory which has been created by the wizard.(Restart the System, Start from Step 1)
4) Try to Use default directory.
Hope this will work.

If it an issue with personal edition
