Thanks, the compatibility view seems to be working. I've never had to use it before.
I was about to attach a log file, but it looks like the install just completeled successfully. It just took a ridiculously long time to finish, with the appearance that it had stopped completely. I don't think I've ever had a program take literally an hour to install. But I'm just glad it's finally done.
Thank you both for your interest in helping.
With the Revit downloads like those from the Subscription site none of the Revit content is included in the executable it is all downloaded during the install process. So depending on the content selected to install and internet speeds the install can take a while.
I have to agree that it did take a really long time.
Not sure how much help i was but i'm always happy to assist.
YEs - this does make sense - but a note about it may be helpful as more people download and install the new version.
It would have been really helpful to me to know that before I started the process.
Just my opinion...

I'm having a similar problem... It gets stuck while installing the Revit MEP part. The upper bar is complete, but it stays that way for hours. Might it be that I cancelled a previous installation? What should I need to delete, besides the TEMP folder?
Might it be that I cancelled a previous installation?
I sort of doubt that, based on my own experience. I cancelled my first attempt at installing Revit 2012 after it sat there and seemed to be doing nothing for hours.
The second attempt, I just let it work, and work, and work.... and then I let it work some more, then finally it finished. It may take you literally hours to install this. What speed is your internet connection? Do you have a lot of bandwidth available to you? Have you read all the posts in this thread?
My internet connection here at work sucks, and the way it sounds is that the installer for Revit downloads files during the installation. So for me, that explained why it took so long.
I read every single post here, and no one seemed to work. I found some useful tips here, and it finally worked. I'm not sure which one did the trick but this what I did:
It took some time, but in the end, it worked (after about 15 minutes of looking like nothing was happening).
I hope this works for everybody, too. It's the first time I ever hear of an Autodesk product that needs the antivirus to be disabled for installation.
Thanks for your help!
