Try to uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 from Control panel, then reinstall revit.

Your product is failing to install because the prerequiste program required by the installer is newer than the version being installed. Please uninstall the prerequisite program causing the issue and run your installer again.

For more information about this process, please see my KB link here:

Good Luck!
