Revit not installing because...this pops up "the system cannot find specified file" RVT2013.msi


Any clue on what is going on? I would really appreciate any help getting Revit to install.

This message is displayed because the service pack installation requires access to the RVT2013.msi file from the original installation media.  If you installed from physical media, such as a DVD or USB, you'll need to locate it and make it available during the installation process.  If you installed from electronic media, web installer or download manager, and subsequently deleted the installation files, the best solution would be to download the original installer again but cancel out of the installation at the first page.  At that point, you should have the installation files available in a C:\Autodesk folder.
