Purchased PC, per 'elite' recommendation, Inventor STILL not loading

Per my son's Instructors recommendation, we are trying to load Inventor. It has been a month since we started trying to load. First we tried Parallels on our mac. Autodesk said we needed more RAM. Last week, had phone support with Autodesk, who recommended we needed more RAM/ a new PC. So, we booted up our newly built PC. We are receiving the same error message now that we received on our Mac/Parrallel/Windows. "CRC failed in Setup\InventorUI.dll Unexpected end of archive"

Inventor version?

Computer operating system and 32 or 64 bit? 

Did you download the proper version?..aka 64 bit for 64 bit OS.. 32 bit for 32 bit OS,etc...

 

Not familiar with that error exactly but it sounds like either the download was corrupted or you downloaded the wrong files..

Welcome to the Forum!

I have absolutely no experience with Mac's or Parallel's but from this topic:
http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Inventor-General/Inventor-on-Macbook-Pro-with-Retina-Display-with-Para...

I figure it might be some setting in Paralell that needs to be changed for you to get more RAM.
Might be worth looking into that.

Thank you, we sold our son's Mac last week and our new PC was built last night, per specs of the Autodesk Elite: 8g RAM & video card.

Michael, we purchased anti virus protection through our fioptics internet service. Should we call our service and ask them to cancel?

Does someone have a link as to how to disable the anti-virus from our wrk station? (Just to make sure its done properly)

Yes, we are using the student free-trial version and the proper 64-bit with our 64-bit version of Windows 7

Our newly built PC has components Netis wireless, MSI 970A-G46 main board, Radeon R7 250 video card....in other words our PC is not any one brand, our engineer hand picked the components per autodesk elite specs given to me last week.
