I cannot seem to get past the page that says:


Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012
Autodesk Design Review 2012
Autodesk Material Library 2012- Medium Image Library


The window states that the Instilaltion is complete but some products failed to install (all 3)


I am running W7 and I downloaded Revit 2012


Appreciate the help

Sorry I didn't mean to be so vague. This is the last thing that showed up in the log.

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!
