Maya 2013 setup initialization failed

I'm trying to install the student version of Autodesk Maya 2013 on PC (running on Windows Vista), but everytime I hit the Install Now button on the website, it starts the setup, and immediately shows the message:


Setup Initialization Failed

Error downloading. Please Install Now again from the Autodesk website.


I've done this multiple times, but it keeps on telling me the same thing.


What can I do to make Maya work?

Vista is not a supported OS for the 2013 product line.  Please use Windows 7 for best results.
