I have a problem since I want to install Maya 2013, but I can't. I've tried several times now and I have not been able to find a solution on the internet.
I tell the installer to install everything and then it begins installing. A few seconds after I see the Maya Logo, I get a weird box with information about console commands for Windows. I press OK and a few seconds after, the installer exits and tells me all 5 products failed to install.
I am running Windows 7 64 Bit Home Edition. I am installing the Educational Version of Autodesk Maya 2013.

So I went into the Installation folders and manually installed the Redistributable that it kept stopping at, and the installer at least progress further now.
If you get all the installation files from either of the download options, some of the folders holds the redistributions of the programs. I simply went into those installation files and found the x64 and x86 folders. Then I just tried installing (some failed as they were already installed) and then I could install Maya 2013.
