Install Autocad directly from DVD, not from hardisk.

I installed in xp machine successfully.

It is October 2011 and still no fix for this?  I have 12 hours invested so far and still  get error -Installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (x86) failed. I have been on the phone with my distributor who wants me to download the install and not use the DVD. With my connection it will take 12 hours and fail after about 6 hours. I have deleted and reinstalled every version of VC++ I can find and then run install and it still fails. I have uninstalled VC++ and let it load from DVD and still fails. I am seriously considering not re upping with ACAD. I cant afford the delays every year.

This worked for me :


Solution : Remove the existing copy of the VCredist that u have which actually has a conflict with the installer.


The story :

Guys.. My error was this :

Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86): C:\Autodesk\Autodesk_Revit_Architecture_2012_English_Win_32-64bit\3rdParty\x86\VCRedist\2010\vcredist_x86.exe /q /l C:\Users\sushruth\AppData\Local\Temp\vcredist_x86_2010.log
2011/12/17:10:46:55	sushruth	SPC	Install	Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)	Failed	Installation aborted, Result=1603

 So i went to that location 



 And tried to execute it myself. I got this error :


A newer version of this package is already installed on your computer

So what i did was, i removed the existing copy and let the installer install the copy that came with it. now it works! I signed up just to share this info :smileyhappy:

This works:


Change the directory of the install !!

I made it Autodesk_"name of program"


and not just Autodesk



This seemed to make it work. I have 3DS Max Design 2012 installed and wanted to install the 2013 version.

It works now..
