Hi. I try to install this program a lot of times and always fails. I tried first normally, and then in Safe Mode and I always get errors. I don't know what to do now...

 

In the log file i have deleted some installations with the same error.

You'll need to attach the bigger installation log in your %temp% location.  It will have more information that can help locate the problem.

I think all problems are becouse of a deficient framework 4.

When i install it, all problems appeared. (i have to use a framework cleanup tool to delete it)

I donwload the full installer from the Microsoft site, but it's the same.

Framework 4 is the problem.

I know, same thing happen with all the Autodesk Suite 2012 that use Framework 4.0.

My friend have Revit 2012, and the same problem.

But is not a problem of the Autodesk program, is a bug on the Framework 4.0.

I download it from Microsoft site, and it have the same problem... stil waiting for the hotfix...

I have found a "solution" (I have installed it and it works). I have seen that it is a security problem. The installer can't write (i don't know) in the windows folders. To solve it I have Unhide and give right to everybody to "?:\Users\User Name\AppData". Doing this I can install
