Why am I Unable to Install LabVIEW 2021?

Updated Nov 2, 2023

Issue Details

When I start to install LabVIEW 2021 on my computer, the installation hangs, stops, crashes, and seems to be being blocked. Trying to proceed with the installation again I receive the following error message in NI-Package Manager: 

NI Installer Requires Windows 10 64-Bit (Version 1507) Or Newer.

Why does the installation of LabVIEW 2021 fail on my computer?
