Like JonRe I keep getting internal error(0^643) when trying to install ADR 2012.
After 4 months trying to install, am at my wits end.
Any help would be most appreciated.

I am having the following issue: we install the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 redistributable as part of our baseline image. The initial Visual C++ 2010 redistributable cannot be installed along side the SP1 version. As has been documented in this topic already, Design Review 2012 does not check for newer versions of the VC++ 2010 redistributable and thus fails to install with the following error:
MSI (s) (A0:68) [14:27:05:184]: Product: Autodesk Design Review 2012 -- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable is required to continue with the installation. Please visit Microsoft download site to retrieve the redistributable package.
My question is: will Design Review 2012 be properly fixed to detect all versions of the required redistributables?
If not, what *exactly* does the Design Review 2012 installer check for so I can temporarily simulate the installation of the older redistributable for the Design Review installation? If nothing else I like the installer to go forward regardless of whether or not it thinks the redistributable is installed, because I know that it is.
Hope this helps.
Here is some information for the packagers of Design Review:
The best way to check for the Visual C++ 2010 redistributable is to check for the mentioned registry key instead of the uninstall key with the product ID. This allows your application to work with updated versions of the 2010 SP1 VCRedist as well as the original.
For anyone, like me, who would rather not install the old VC++ 2010 redistributable (and would instead like to install the SP1 version) here are some steps you can follow to make it work:
This will make the installer look for the SP1 version of the VC 2010 Redistributable instead of the original version.
Also, if you have been installing the .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile instead of the full install you can edit the NewSignature112 row's key to be "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client" to allow the software to install with the client profile. I have not fully tested Design Review with the client profile, so it is possible that features in the full profile are required.
I have been trying to install ADR2012 for over 5 months now but keep getting
internal error (0*643), have you found any resolution to this problem ?
Any help most appreciated, very frustrated !
