I'm trying to Install Inventor 2013 on my Win 8 (64-bit) Laptop, but at the end of Installationprocess it gets stuck every time.

I installed it before sucessfully on the same Laptop on its HDD, now after I build in a SSD it fails.


I already disabled UAC, tried the Compatibilty Mode (Win 7 and Admin rights) and disabled the antivir.


Before it stucks a smaller window pops up shortly, but i only can see its frame and a black background.


Hope someone knows what to do, because i need the software in november in the school.


thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Hello and welcome to the forum.


Unfortunately Inventor 2013 is not supported on windows 8. There may be any number of issuesion you encounter on that operating system.


If you want to run on windows 8 you will neet to Install Inventor 2014. 


Autodesk Inventor 2014

I solved the problem with reinstalling Win 8.
Maybe trouble with updates.

Inventor 2014 is not possible because i have to use 2013 in my final exams.

Thanks for helping.
