I have downloaded the Revit 2012 version twice and the installation failes each time at the same spot.
The installation prcedure gets stuck at item 17 out of 19 wich is when it wants to install Microsoft Visual C++2008
KB958314 (ATL) (x86)
A Windows Installer dialog box appears with the following:
"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD rom or other removable disk that is not available.
Insert the Microsoft Visual C++2008x86 runtime 9.0.30729 disk and click ok."
Of course I don't have that disk, and the only option I have is to cancel which results in a failed installation.
Autodesk, what is the fix for this?
(windows 7 home premium 64 bit system)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Sounds like you still got a bad download somehow, try downloading it one more time using a download manager like http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/.
Same problem here.
Downloaded Revit Architecture 2012 Trial two times but the installation process stucks at 17 of 19
or at 2 of 6
couldnt even cancel the installation process it only stops by using the windows task manager
If you are not getting an error but the install just seems stuck or hung you are probably experincing the same issues as this post.
We tried to download Revit 2012 last week and managed to get a file size of 3,156,807kb. Also tried this week (different user / computer). Again same file size (which does not match size listed on web site). Anyway we tried to do an install and of course it fails. However on the log file it only gets as far as the Microsoft Visual C++ etc Failed!
And of course we can't order a DVD at this stage because it is not in the list yet! (can get 2011, 2012 not listed as an option!).
We tried both methods of download!
Is there another location in Autodesk we can download from?
Thank you Nic
You might try installing the Visual C++ redistributables manually first then try installing Revit again.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)
Installing those Microsoft files worked and Revit 2012 installed with the exception
of needing rdbg_exp.msi to be installed, which I did not have available.
After cancellingthte rdbg_exp.msi, the remainder of Revit 2012 installed fine.
Not sure what this file does, and so far does not seem to affect running Revit 2012.
