Akamai netsession interface failure

I have been trying repeatedly to install the student version of autocad 2013, and every time it starts the install stalls at "installing akamai netsession interface" and gives me a pop up box saying "network failure".

 

i have tried chrome, IE, and firefox.

Hi Brent,

 

Can you try downloading via an alternative method such as Browser Download or Install Now?

 

Please let us know if you have additional issues or accept as a solution if this resolves the problem.

Hi Brent,

 

That shouldn't affect the download as much as it would the actual install / usability. Per the sytem requirements, AutoCAD 2013 is not supported to run on vista. Is it necessary that run the current version, or would you be able to utilize a previous version (2012-2010 are also currently available in the Education Community)?

i was able to install it last night using the browser download. i think it stopped the first time i did the browser DL because i must have had a hickup in my internet connection.

 

i am able to open it up and start using it, exactly what does "not supported" mean? how much functionality will i be able to get out of it? 

 

i am just learning autocad and we use 2013 in my class, is 2012 different enough that i will be confused from learning 2013 in school? 

 

thank you for all the help.

I am having the exact same problem downloading autocad 2013 and I am using Windows 8.  The Akami netsession fails, everytime.  I have tried all methods of downloading and each has various problems and eventually fail.  The odd thing is I have previously used the install now option to download Inventor 2014 on the same computer.  Any idea what is going on??

Welcome to the community Jason!

 

Have you tried disabling your firewall, and/or turning off your antivirus software? What sort of errors are you getting with the Browser Download method?

Welcome to the community Alejandro!

 

Are you able to try utilizing a different download method, specifically Browser Download?

 

From Matt: Download and Installation -> Software Download Links -> I need to redownload my product
