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_Engli
sh_Win_32-64bit\3rdParty\x86\VCRedist\2010\vcredis t_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A newer version of this package is already installed on your computer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
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..
thankyou! this also worked for me too.
I tried updating the files via microsoft and installing every virsion from 2005-2012 which did not work, when i removed them all it installed.
