Autodesk Inventor Pro 2012 Won't Install At All

I downloaded the free student version of Inventor Pro 2012, but the program fails to install every time I try. I get through the license agreement, serial key, and customization screens, but when the installation screen comes up, I get a message saying that everything failed to install (screenshot of the error is attached). I'm running Win7 64-bit, and my hardware is definitely well above the minimum system requirements. Does anyone know why this might be happening, and how I can fix it? I'd really like to be able to use Inventor...

see from the screenshot, Design Review installed failed.please find the log file in "temp" folder and attach it. it seems there are some third software install failed

you can try to uninstall other Design Review version if you installed before and install the new one again

if you don't need Design Review and Vault temporary, you can uncheck them when you select products to install and see if they can install successfully.
