AutoCAD 2014 will start the installation. Here is the result from the setup log

Went through all the preparation steps, but can't get an installation. Any  suggestions?

Have you tried to call setup.exe in compatibility mode:

Hello. Clear out your TEMP files and turn off your Antivirus. Then open your Task manager and make sure your Antivirus is not running.


Then uninstall ALL the Microsoft C++ entries. Most machines have multiples. I would uninstall all C++ and then uninstall the NET on the system and then try to install the program. It should install the C++ versions it is in need of.

Trend Micro needed to be disabled to allow the install. Thanks for the tip.

I had the ssme issue, tried all the turn offs including FW, AV, I ended up downloading the stand alone .net 4.5, installed that, then took ownership of the folders it created during instal, it repeatedly told me I didnt have rights to create a folder inside my own user folder, which is madder than cheese because Im the only user and admin.


Not sure if this helps any more than was said but it was no mean feat believe me to install this, however, it did instal everything including lisp and SP1 in one foul swoop


Hope it helps
