While Shiva is correct and installing Sites 9 on Windows 10 is not officially supported, it is possible to install it and get it running (for development purposes).

Pankaj Gaur has written a blog detailing the steps he followed.

The most important step is to open the command line and use the following command:

SDLTridionSites9.exe -mode=debug

If you are trying to install the content manager server on Windows 10, it is NOT supported. See attached link. Topology manager also has the same prerequisistes as content manager.

The content manager clients such as CME, Content porter, template builder etc. may be supported with Windows 10.

Now, the error becomes self explanatory!
