"Error 1920". "The Service failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services." This always comes up everytime I try downloading Inventor 2013. I am also a student,so I get it for free. I have tried running it as an administrator, but it still doesn't work. I have already downloaded all the needed drivers. I am attaching a screen shot. Please help me with this. Thank you.

Let's be clear on terminology to start with-- it looks from your screenshot that you are installing Inventor 2013, not downloading it, correct?  Downloading is how the installer gets to your computer from Autodesk's website, installing is getting the software configured and ready to run on your computer.


When you run the installer have you set your UAC to minimum and stopped your antivirus utility?  Do you have administrator privileges?

Is there a way an expert could remotely look at the problem and fix it? 

The problem happens when I install the Inventor 2013. The problem only shows up when it's installing inventor.
