Hello,

I am trying to redownload Revit 2013 on a new laptop.

I tried Download Now...nothing happened.  Install Now gave me the Communication Failure msg.

I cleared ports/turned off my firewall and tried the Virtual Agent Matt>Downloading and Installation>Software Download links>I need to redownload my software.  After 5hrs of install I received the Communication Failure msg again.

Help please.

Lauren

Welcome to the community Lauren! 

 

As the install communication error is specific to the Install Now delivery method, is there any chance that you accidentally ran that again as apposed to the .exe from utilizing the Browser Download option?

Hello Tin!

 

Confirming that Inventor 2012 is not compatible with Windows 8, which would explain the install errors. Please check out the following for a complete list of products that are supported on Windows 8.

Okay...tried again and now after I've clicked on Download Now...Autodesk Download Manager installs and nothing happens.  When I click on the Download Manager it says no active or pending downloads.

Hello again Lauren!

 

As you now have the download manager installed, what about if you proceed with reinitiating the download (when you first selected the Download Now option)?

 

If that doesn't work can you please give Browser Download a shot?
