Civil 3D 2013, or any other previous version, was not designed for, and is not supported on, Win8 !!!!
Autocad Civil 3d 2013 & Windows 8
Windows.. what?? How did you get that?
Don't be surprised if something's going wrong on a beta OS, sir...
Windows 8 is not supported by any Autodesk products mainly because it is, as Antonio pointed out, still essentially a beta OS.
Undoubtedly, the Autodesk product family will run under Windows 8 at some point in the future but until then you are on your own....
Windows 8 is no longer Beta, the RTM version is available to certain people (MSDN members for example).
Although I had no problem installing C3D 2013 on Win8 I did have the same problem you are having with installing C3D 2012.
Here's what I had to do.
Copy all the installer files from the DVD onto my local harddrive.
Install .NET 2.0 from MS website
Open the "Setup.ini" file at the root of the DVD content
Delete section from #============= DOTNET Begin =============== to #============= DOTNET End ===============
Save Setup.ini file
As a side note, i've run into problems on Win8 installing various programs that try to install various versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ 20XX SP1 Redistributable. When this happens I've been able to fix the problem by downloading and installing the redistributable straight from Microsoft then reinstalling the problem program.
Beta or RTM version - makes no difference, still not an officially supported OS
Whilst you are to be applauded for your workaround, i'd suggestt that is a bit much to expect an "ordinary Joe" to be able to know what to do.
I'd guess the 2013 product family are pretty much Windows 8 ready but as for previous versions........
Not supported, true, will be used any way, I'm sure.
Put it out there for IT or Developer types that have to test before Win8 is released to the general public.
I've had C3D running on 8 RTM since day 1 of the release.
It isntalled fine. Make sure all user access control is turned off.
Windows 8 boots faster, resumes from sleep faster, has better dual monitor support
You just have to look as the new interface as you start menu instead of go WTF is this
Once your to the desktop it's practicly the same (sans the Start Menu)
If you need a start menu install Start8 from stardock.
I too had no problem getting 2013 on Win8, I did have a problem with 2012 though where the work around I noted fixed it.
I agree with you on the Win8, once you realize you have a start screen instead of menu there really is no huge differences except a faster more secure machine. Everyone talks about the interface but there is a lot of behind the scenes changes that were made that make it faster and more secure.
