I tried installing revit and couldn't, the installation wizard said: "an error accurred while installing this product." I looked at the installation log file and unfortunately couldnt understand what went wrong. Is there anything that could fix this problem?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Looking through the log, specifically the last line you can see where it fails:
"Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64) Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603"
This is most likely failing because the prerequisite already installed on the workstation is newer than the one supplied by the Autodesk installer. Because Windows will not allow an older version of the prerequisite to be installed, the installation aborts with a 1603 error in the installation log file.
A typical workaround is to uinstall the prerequisite (Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64)) via the Control Panel (add / remove programs), and then reinstall the software.
