Here is the link to the post about recommended system specifications for Freestyle.
Can you please try copying the content of the installation DVD to a tem folder (e.g. c:\FRinstall) on your hard drive and then run AcadFreestyleSetup.exe from the folder.
In this way we can exclude possible issues with optical disk drives drivers.
I downloaded freestyle to a "save file" in my "Program \AUTODesk" folder.
I have since attempted to install from the folder with everything including the internet closed (I realize the program can still access DSL Internet port). I get the same response text error codes.

I'm not a computer guru, but understand a few of the basics.
Please note that you need to have an open Internet connection during Freestyle installation.
Freestyle installer (the file you downloaded) must have an uninterruptable connection to our server, so that all the necessary prerequisites and the program binaries to be installed successfully over the internet. Thus during the Freestyle installation, we suggest disabling internet security apps and antivirus, as they are known to block installing certain dll files. Please also make sure that you are installing Freestyle from your system administrator account.
In past, I remember a user with a DSL light connection, was getting the same error (1603) when trying to install Freestyle. He ended up going to a local library and install Freestyle successfully through high speed wireless connection. Perhaps you can try the same.
I talked with the trail sales dept and they indicate my problem may be not enough RAM ( I have 512MB + (2 x 128)MB). He said Sys Req is 1 GB. So I guess I must give up on freelstyle at this point.
However, I am using Quick CAD 8 and have a problem with the rotate function. I can select the group and select the rotate point, but when I click rotate the selected group rotates about 8+ degrees even though the rotate angle is set ror 45, 30, 90 or whatever. The free rotate handle isn't there. Any sugestions? I've had the program for several years, but haven't used it having AutoCAD 2002 to work with. A virus disabled my computer and 2002 is gone to bit heaven. Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
Section 3.1.2 is the one where it explicitly specifies that one additional installation may be used, with the stated limitations.
So essentially you may have 2 installations and have the product activated on 2 computers with only 1 user, correct?
No. I have tried to install it on one computer twice and was completely unsuccessful both times and will not be able to use it at all. If 1 GB of Ram is required, may never be able to install it or use it. Gary
