1. Run Windows Update and reboot.
2. Try installing .NET 4.0 alone.
You can run .NET installer directly from this folder.
Tell me if this completes or gives an error.
3. Are you trying to install Autodesk Design Review with AutoCAD 2012?
I would try installing AutoCAD without ADR and see if the results are any different.
I ran Windows Update early this morning with everything complete.
Ran disk cleanup
ran spyware scans
I have run .N4 alone, and that completes
Then I run the setup.exe and it STILL wants to install.
Then already having .N4 on the system, I uninstalled, let AutoCAD install .N4 itself. STILL fails.
Installing without Design Review provides no relief....
.Net4 is the first thing it wants to install.
SO I tried another procedure, disabled the .N4 services, installed the 4.5 beta, then uninstalled it, having no .N4 on this computer whatsoever, did NOT install Design Review, still fails. After I hit the install button it'll fail around 2 minutes into the install, or a minute after .Net4's progress bar has completed.
I have scoured the internet and have tried every fix posted with no success when it comes to getting the .net verified. Without the verified status most instatllation of programs relying on this will fail.
I have found a fix that does lead to full .net verification and subsequent successful installation of all programs that require this. AutoCad 2012 and Autodesk Building Design Suite Ultimate 2012.
The fix came in the form of a program from TurboTax. This program called "TurboTaxUtility.exe".
My first attempt using this program I used the advanced mode. I do not know if using the quick mode will give the same result.
I did have the TurboTax program installed on my HD earlier this year successfully and had no problems with the program. I do not know if this fix will work if you do not have TurboTax installed or attempted to install the program but it would not hurt to try if the .net verification would result.
I forgot to say that I had problems with verification of .net 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 when I tried the TurboTax fix. After the fix all the .net versions were verified.
That didn't work because we do not use TurboTax...and it errors out saying that no installation of TT can be found. I haven't heard ANYTHING from AutoDesk in over a week...and I'm starting to lose faith in this product.
I'm trying to install AutoCad Student edition using the 10 MB exe (AutoCAD_2012_English_Win_32bit.exe), but the installation fails with this message.
CRC failed in 3rdParty\NET\4\wcu\dotNetFramework\dotNetFx40_Full
Unexpected end of archive
One thing to notice is that I am running 32-bit Win XP, but the error states there is a problem with a 64 bit file. I don't understand why it is trying to use something for a 64-bit OS.
I have looked at a lot of posts on this site and tried to follow the instructions. All attempts to fix this result in the same error on subsequent install. These are things I have done.
I am stuck. Please advise.
I am having this problem as well, can someone please give an answer on how to fix this?
We have had enough of giving log files, we all have the same issue, I am only concerned with the ANSWER. Something is wrong with the program's way of recognizing which .NET framework you have, even when you have the right one
