Fail on installing express edition 21c on Windows 10 Pro

Cannot install oracle express 21c on Windows 10 Pro.

I check the error in …\product\21c\cfgtoollogs\dbca, there are two files,

The silent.log_XXXX shows

[FATAL] [DBT-50000] Unable to check available system memory.

Another file trace.log_YYYY_MM_DD_HH-MM show many error, some are:

[RuntimeExec.runCommand:240] exec exception:Cannot run program "C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Temp\CVU_21.\\exectask.exe": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified
