Re: Communication Failure Error with installation

I'm encountering the same issue while trying to download the Student Version of Maya 2013. I've tried Install Now and Download Now and neither work. Install now just gives me a file that, when run, only gives me a Communication Error. I tried changing the ports and I even turned off my firewall to try that. When I click Download Now it only gives me the install file for the Autodesk Download Manager, while has already been installed. When I run the DLM a download does not start like the website and all resources I can find suggest. As previously mentioned, I had a bunch of files that had accumulated from the multiple attempts, I deleted those and I'm still encountering this issue. I restarted my computer and repeated everything mentioned, to no avail. Any suggestions?

Delete all file you can find related to Maya, then try the browser download option. Keep in mind that it is a different file than the ones you have downloaded previously. That is what worked for me.

Hi All, I have been having the same problem trying to download Building Design Suite 2014. I don't have access to the Firewall, so would like to use the Browser download - eh - where do you go for that.

The webpage does not appear to allow it.

 

Any quick guidance much appreciated.

Regards,

Ciaran

Hello Ciaran,

 

As the 2014 suite browser download links are not yet available on Matt, our Virtual Assistant (should be within the next couple of days), I'll send you a Private Message (little envelope next to your profile name when signed in) with the corresponding timed links.

I'm having the same problem I disable the firewall and tried the advanced settings like discussed.  No luck.  What's this alternative download.  I don't understand

Do not close or refresh the web page once you click Install Now, wait for the <abc>_Setup.exe to get downloaded. Once it downloads, run it. Wait for the main installer screen to appear. Hopefully, this should solve the problem.


Thanks & Regards,

Still not working again I double click on setup.exe.  Windows wants to makes sure I want to install this I say yes.  Autodesk AutoCAD 2014 screen pops up and saids initizing and then I get the communication failure error.  I can't even download the free trail demo from you website because I get a network error from that to.
