AutoCAD MEP 2013 Download won't install

i'm having a number of issues trying to install AutoCAD MEP 2013.  i have downloaded it twice and tried multiple times to install it.  every attempt results in the same errors.

 

first error when extracting the downloaded EXE (if it is hard to read, it says "Some installation files are corrupt):

0000_ 20120420.png

 

i hit ok to that error and the box listing which files have been extracted says this in read at the end of the list:

CRC failed in Content\ACA_MEP\en\cp_ABS_US_Metric-en-US\aecbcontent.cab
Unexpected end of archive

 

i closed it and tried to run the installer manually by browsing out to where the files were extracted and double clicked setup.exe.  during one of the installation attempts i was told a file was missing and was asked to either Abort, Ignore, or Retry.  hitting retry repeats the message.  hitting aborts will stop the installer (shocker).  and hitting ignore just pops up a similar message about a different file.  but now when i try to start the installer manually nothing happens.

 

i'm at a loss

Problems downloading the Autodesk software and/or CRC errors may be avoided by using another web browser, or using the alternate browser download method.

Save your time...its worthless!

Still slow as ever

Good luck opening up your 2011 models

Progressive Updating is a JOKE!

 

'Lucky 13'.......

 

Very disappointing....
