I have tried to install IDSP 2014 several times and it fails to install. I have attached one of the install logs.
The portions that failed to install were:
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014
Revit Structural 2014
Navisworks Simulator 2014
3 ds max design
The installer never created the Autocad folder on the C drive which has 108 GB free space.
The C++ 2008 Redistributable failed to install. I've seen that prevent the overall installer from finishing.
If you look in the directory where all the files were extracted to (before installation) you should find the installer for C++; try running that seperately and then re-run the overall installer.
Yep, this error is the first in the log:
Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (x64) Failed Installation aborted, ....
So go to the windows control panel, search if that seems to be already installed (it is, I'm quite sure) ==> select it and uninstall it.
If you find other items like Visual C++ 2008 or 2010 ==> uninstall them too.
Then start the installation again, they will be installed from the Autodesk installer (but the correct version).
Good luck, - alfred -
>> it continues to fail with the same errors
So in the logfile it's the same position that shows the (first) failure?
If so try
a) to download the VC++2008 64bit redistributable from the www (>>>here<<<) and install it before you start the Autodesk installer (don't install it's updates, I had a problem some time ago that an update of this package broke the installation of DesignReview, which had an older version in it's setup and so the installation failed).
b) to redownload the whole package
c) reinstall it as new user (you just created with full admin permission, disabled antivirus)
Sorry not to have more, good luck, - alfred -
Just for curiosity, what operating system, and does this machine have existing Autodesk products installed, or did it in the past?
>> but I get an error saying that there was already an installation in progress. This was following a fresh re-boot
Do you have Windows-Update activated? If so there might be updates that install also VC++Redist modules. If so then disable the automatic update, do a reboot and try it then again.

We are having the same problem at my location. Built the deployment per the guidelines. Run the installation various ways: direct via the Img\Setup.exe (with all the options), within a .BAT file, via SCCM 2007, etc. It either bombs immediately with a 259 error/exit code, or it runs for EVER and then bombs with 1618 or 1603 and then reverses all of it back out. We've tried this on Windows 7 SP1 x64 Enterprise Edition, clean installation without any other apps installed. Of the 9 we've tried so far, 6 work fine, 3 failed. Those three just will not install. I'm about ready to put them back on 2013 just so the users can have Civil 3D and Map 3D.
