Re: ADR 2012 installation issue collection

Hi,

 

Thank you for your feedback.

 

For Windows & 64bit system, the cache folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Akamai\Cache\.

 

The installer will install the Akamai NetSession Interface in your computer, then download required components for Design Review by Akamai Interface, and install components automatically at last.

 

So please make sure you have uninstalled the Akamai Netsession Interface, and then run the installer.

 

If you still fail to install VC++ component by these steps, please try to find out the component in cache folder and install it manually, then try the installer application again.

Hi Ben,

 

Still no luck. I tried the uninstall and reinstall and it still did not work. Then I tried to install the VC ++ manually from the Cache folder and got the same error message as when I try to install the ADR 2012 package.

 

Attached is the screen shot of when the manual install failed.

 

Thank you again.

I just want to point out how profoundly STUPID the Design Review 2012 install routine is set up to check for the requisite Visual Studio runtimes.

 

The installer is fatally flawed in that the .MSI only allows the installation to continue if the INITIAL RELEASES of 2005, 2008 and 2010 runtimes are present - and WILL NOT install if you have (wisely) installed the latest updated versions from microsoft (which are pushed down and available from windows update). All three runtimes have updated versions released as critical updates from Microsoft, dated this year (2011).

 

So in order to automate an unattended install of this package, I first have to install the horribly outdated original runtimes, run the autodesk installers, then run the updated runtime installers to ensure the PC is not left with a gaping security hole. What a waist of time!

 

FYI - the latest versions of the required runtimes (that I suggest everybody install if you have not already) are:

KB2467175 for 2005 runtimes

KB2467174 for 2008 runtimes

KB2467173 for 2010 runtimes

 

These are not "patches" per se, they are complete, stand alone full versions of the runtimes.

This did not work for me. And since I can't see any difference between ADR 2012 and ADR 2011, apart from this problem in 2012, I decided to go back to 2011. However I can't find it??????

Hi,

 

Thanks for trying ADR 2012, you can view the difference in what's new:

Here you are the ADR 2011 download link if you're going to revert back:

Hi Dicky,

 

I'm not even able to install the 2011 version so I'm going back to 2010 which worked perfectly for me. However, I'm only able to open and read DWF files but not DWG files from the 2010 version for some reason. Any suggestions of what to do so that I can at least open and read a DWG file?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

ADR cannot view DWG file independently. In order to open a DWG file with ADR 2010, you need to install the same version of DWG View tools (AutoCAD 2010 or DWG Trueview 2010).

 

Thanks,

-Dicky

I can't install Autodesk 2012 on Windows XP SP3 from the downloaded executable.  It fails and gives me the error which I have attached.  I also included log files.
