I managed to install a student version quite some time ago
by deleting all the prerequisites from the install script. That´s
easily done in any editor that features search and replace.
It also could be because of the c++ redistributable. I had the
pleasure encountering both problems. The last several times
I just removed the packages and the installation worked after-
wards. It´s the 2010 versions of the runtime I removed.
Are you getting red crosses in the installation routine or are
you getting a different error message?
Did you think about simply reassociating the files in Windows?
Hope this helps
Here is what I get.
Firstly (during install)
Then it continues trying to install other products. Then I get at the end;
Now, if you have a way to identify the runtime files so I could know what to remove, that would be great!
With the re-assosciating, I tried that first and foremost after I removed 2013. It would not do it. Wouldnt even allow me to add 2014 to the list to try and associate it. I was very frusterated (even more so now!) and thought this should be a painless way to fix my problem....boy was I wrong!
OMG! I found the solution!
Found this thread
Taking you to this link
Tried revo uninstaller pro (great program but didnt cut it!)
So I went on to the devil (Microsoft Fix it)
And when you run the executable it asks you what program didnt install correctly, in my case I selected the program from the installer that it gave up on (Acad Mechanical) and it did whatever it does, I re ran the installer and BAM! Randy is happy once again!!
All this for a file association issue.
I hope this helps someone in the future....
Have a great weekend all!! Thanks for the input!
