Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012 Won't Install

I've downloaded the free student version of Inventor 2012 a few times, and each time it refuses to even finish extracting, and the extractor says that the download was corrupted. 

So I went to the Autodesk folder in my C drive to try and install it that way, and it said that the Design Review 2012.msi file couldn't be found so it wouldn't install. 

What should I do?

Make sure you have lots of drive space so that the file is saved in a continuous part of the HD.  i.e. fragmentation.   Then check out this post to download the software parts again.
