Cannot Install Revit 2013. Something called Windows Register Server stopped.

I think the problem lies around here (pasted below) in the log.

Anyone has any idea why?

I have tried reinstalling it three times, same problem all the time.

Some kind of error happens during registering a dll.

I have also tried uninstalling Revit 2011 which I had installed and everything that uses autodesk shared libs, basically removed everything autodesk.

Please help!

In Windows Explorer navigate to the folder "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\Structural\COM\2013\DBAccess" select the file "RBCTMdbEditX.dll", right click and choose Rename. After renaming the file run setup for Revit 2013 again.

 

Thanks,

Danny

Thanks for the reply

What should I rename it to? anything?

Anyway I'll try rename it to RBCTMdbEditX.dll.bak and see what happens.

Unfortunately that didn't work...

still the same problem.

 

Is there any way that I can bypass the registration of this dll and manually register it at a later time?

Same problem here with Revit MEP 2013. Error 1722, action win64RegisterRBCTMdbEditX.742DD471_03BC_4C75_8992_518E2BDABD1C

 

Revit is installed, but It fail to start. I see the splash screen, then boom.

 

Lost one day with this. And this stupid installer detect that Revit MEP 2013 is installed, so I need to delete it, I'm not able to desinstall it with the control panel.

I've deleted the whole directory (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\Structural\COM\2013\DBAcces), relaunch the installed and It worked. 10 hours for installing a single program... I had to write a special program in order to remove some keys created in the registry by Revit...
