Autodesk inventor 2012 failed to install

Hello all,

I am trying to install Inventor trial version over the network, with the network installer. It fails when "Installing Akamai NetSession Interface" - I get a box "Network Failure". What are network reqiurements for it? Is possible to order Installation DVD or get the entire installer? I am in EMEA region, Poland.

Network deployments really aren't meant for trial versions, but for network licensed versions.  You should be able to simply run setup.exe on the client machine from the downloaded version without any issues.

Hello Travis,


I was able to download the trial version of Inventor LT 2014, but when it automatically run it, as it was installing the Akamai NetSession Interface, my computer tells me that I have a 'Network Failure'.  For the Inventor LT 2014, there is only the install now option, so I use this option to download.  


Before I download it, I did turned off my UAC, anti-virus, Windows Firewall and I also downloaded Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.  Could it be that my computer does not meet the system requirements for this software?  See image of my system (Lenovo H330).Ben System Info.JPG


Is there a way, I can run the Setup.exe without meeting 'Network Failure'?


Thank you,
