I have some problems with the installing of AutoCAD 2013 student version. I am using win 8 now. And I think it's about .NET. However, I tried to install .NET 4 or .NET 4.5 from MS, both failed.
Here is the log file:

Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you tried checking that:
Do you have any other Autodesk products currently installed?
There is a known issue regarding a bug when you try to install AutoCAD with SP1.1 at the same time. See the Up & Ready blog post http://upandready.typepad.com/up_and_ready/2012/10
I hope this helps,
The reason it failed on Windows 8 is because it is looking to install .NET Framework 4.0 which is already preinstalled and newer on the Win 8 OS. Windows 8 is not a supported OS for your installation. You can however, get it installed by modifying the setup.ini to remove the prerequisite installer for .NET 4.0.
