I am trying to install a student version of Revit Architecture 2012 onto my laptop, but everytime I try to install it instantly fails saying there are still 24 more items to install. Attached I've installed my error report. I am using a 64-bit operating system, intel(R)Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHx, 6.00 GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium. I'm not too tech savy so any help I would greatly appreciate and reinstalling windows is not an option as I just purchased this laptop.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There may be a newer version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed on your computer which is causing the install failure.
A typical workaround is to uinstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86) via the Control Panel (add / remove programs), reinstall the software, and then install the latest version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86) from Microsoft (linked here).

Please accept as a solution if this fully resolves the issue, or reply with specifics if the problem still persists.
My Revit structure 2013 update is doing the same thing. Error code 1603 after a 30 second pause on "Gathering required information". I have uninstalled both C++ 2010 packages, removed the registry autodesk folder, turned off UAC, turned off antivirus and even tried in safe mode. Same error every time. I used a file linked in an autodesk email rst2013ur14.exe and also tried Autodesk_Revit_Structure_2013-x64_Update1.exe.
Anything else to try?
Did you copy the contents of the installation locally to a folder on your C:\ and install from there under a different user with local admin rights, before disabling UAC, and anti-virus?
Philip, I installed from the local drive. There is only 1 computer with one user on my setup.
In anycase, I stopped my copy of Revit working when deleting registry files and could not get it to uninstall or reinstall. So i have now formatted the whole PC and done a fresh install of windows and all software and the update installed perfectly. Not an ideal solution i know, but done.
hi i have the same issue,i am using windows 8, and i cant install revit architecture 2012 student version,this is my log

can you please help me to install revit architecture,i really need it...
I tried to install revit 2012 Architecture (student version) about 2 months ago and just gave up. But i really want to practice and the attachments indicate the errors. I tried to uninstall the 201 C++ redistributable error and the 2005 C++ redistributable error - as you can see from my control panel shot - none of the microsoft items are there to uninstall. I even checked under "installed updates" and deleted one of the C++ 2010 Redistributable.
It is just getting extremely frustrating. I will do a manual install and do without the fancy visuals. Please direct me so I can do that kind of an install and maybe one day Autodesk will resolve this issue.
Thank you Kindly.
Install the offending version directly from Microsoft. See it installs then.
As for the previous poster, 2012 products are not supported on Windows 8.
Hello Mr. Philiips,
May you also give time to see and check my problem, i have attcahed herein the installation log from he temp folder. I am failing to install the C++ SP1 Redis (x64), starts rolling back for the same but (X86)....
I already tried,
Option 1) Uninstalling all C++ program, uninstall autodesk software related file, restart and re-install but fails with the same error
Option 2) Uninstalling all C++ program, uninstall autodesk software and delete all autodesk, RAC and revit related file in the registry, restart but fails to install with the same error.
Furthermore, for your kind info, i am trying to install the trial version in a 64-bit OS Windows 7 Home Premium (but i do also see program files related to x86 (x32) in my primary system).
Thanks a lot,
