I am installing the trial version of Splunk Enterprise on Windows 10 pro 64bit. When I use a domain account the installation fails. But when I use a local account the installation succeeds.
Do the trial versions of Splunk Enterprise and Universal Forwarder support domain accounts?
the installation can fail if the domain user don't have required permissions.
Check the %TEMP%\MSI*.log (usually c:\Windows\Temp\MSI*.log or c:\Users_username_\AppData\Local\Temp\MSI*.log) direct after the failed installation. If unsure, post the log here.

I am beginning to think that the trial versions do not support domain accounts. I have followed every procedure to assign permissions to the domain account per Splunk but that does not resolve the issue. Local accounts work just fine
have you checked that your domain account have all required rights as listed in the documentation?: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.3/Installation/ChoosetheuserSplunkshouldrunas
