Welcome to the community.
Your product is failing to install because the prerequiste program required by the installer is failing prior to the installation of your Autodesk software.
Install .NET Framework Runtime 3.5 SP1 Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603
If the prerequisite program already exists on your computer, it is likely newer than the one the Autodesk installer is attempting to install. Please uninstall the prerequisite program causing the issue and run your installer again.
For more information about this process, please see my KB link here:
The prerequisite is not already installed and installation still fails, then you may need to make an advanced edit to the setup.ini file to ignore the error. Please make sure you manually install the prerequisite file from Microsoft and then modify the setup.ini file accordingly.
For more information on this process, please see my KB article here:
Since yours involves .NET Framework, if none of the above help, you might need to use the .NET Cleanup Tool and then reinstall your .NET Framework redistributables.
