Installation Server Issues

After numerous attempts to install Revit it seems I keep hurdling at this server issue.

 

I have reported the problem before and it was suggested that maybe I had accidently selected "network server" but i can confidently say now I have not done this! The icon is all there -- and I have watched all the help videos out there --but the screen to select standalone license or network license has not even came up!!!

 

 i cant even get to the stage where you enter your product key!

 

I am guessing maybe my windows server is not new enough so I am in the process of downlaoding 2012 trial. In fact all I seem to be doing is downlaoding other programs to assist with the download of REVIT!!!

How do i get to the screen to enter my standalone license? 

 

Autodesk® Revit® Server is an optional server application for Revit software. Can this not be ignored for my downlaod? 

 

HELP!!! A repeatedly agitated student who is becoming more frustrated with the term 'autodesk installation"!

 

Thanks in advance

this is what revit server is: http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Revit/enu/community/videos/Revit_Server/Revit_Server_-_What_It_Is_and_W...

 

it has nothing to do with licensing

by default all software is set to standalone licensing

i have no idea what you did or what you are doing

Do you even want Revit server?  You know you don't have to install those optional tools, right?
