Autodesk 3DSMax 2014 Install Error

Hi 3DS Max Community, I'm currently experiencing trouble downloading my student copy of 3DS Max 2014. I was able to successfully download and install the subcomponents such as Composite and Backburner as well as the Material Archives, but can't find and install the main 3DS Max files. When attempting to repair my install the installer acts as if all the files are there and nothing's wrong. I don't know is this is due to it reading previous installation still inside my computer, but I thoroughly uninstalled and deleted every component and file before trying again. I've tried to install numerous times and uninstalled afterward. Has anyone experienced a similar problem?

Try a browser download from site.  The button is not very apparent.  


If the software will not install and it appears to be installed but it isn't installed, please use Fix It to uninstall it.
