In almost every case, the logs are required to tell what goes wrong.

Looks like "Create System" fails for some unknown reason.

I'm out of office unable to run this by any colleague at R&D.

I recommend contacting your regional ABB support office - attach all log files (there should be more than one file in the ZIP)

There are three compressed files if not mistaken, please ensure you extract three compressed files into a single file. Meaning put all the extracted files together under a same folder for installation.
