Default Pro Tools First won't load or start

Hello all.

I've tried everything I can think of the get Pro Tools first to work. I'll download it from the Avid site & open the .exe installer. It appears to install correctly and puts an icon on the desktop but when I click on it or try to open from the menu all I get is the revolving blue circle of despair!

I've uninstalled, cleared cache and tried again to no avail. Sometimes it won't even complete the installation.

It's a Dell PC with Intel I5 3,2 G & 8G of ram, running Win10 and dedicated to recording audio only. When I run the windows troubleshooter, it looks like the version of PTf is for windows 8.

Any thoughts?
