Revit 2013 installation aborts with code 193

Hi everyone,

trying to install Revit 2013. Sadly, the installation will abort with error code 193 (log file will be attached).


I´ve read something about that previous installed versions of C++ 2008 Redistributable are causing the error. I deinstalled my previous versions of the 2008 versions, but the error will not vanish.

Any hints?

Ok, found the solution.


Install the packages manually with admin privileges. Both, 32 and 64 bit version.

Somehow, the Autodesk installer won´t use its granted admin privileges on these packages.
