Can Autodesk provide better solutions? The Communication error is happening to many users, students and educators. Many of my students are very frustrated with this. Where and what do they need to turn off the firewall in windows? Autodesk needs to provide better information for everyone.
I'm having the same issues as well. I have tried downloading Maya 2014 x64 for my PC. I continue to have the "Communication Failure" error. How can I fix this? I have browsed throughout the Autodesk site for solutions, but I can't resolve the problem.
We're in the process of putting together a comprehensive solution that covers multiple causes of the Communication Failure error and the corresponding solutions.
For the mean time and as a workaround, have you tried utilizing a different download method, specifically Browser Download?
Please accept as a solution if this fully resolves the issue, or reply if additional support is needed.
Click on the Install Now button on the web page instead of trying to run the <...>_setup.exe from the local machine. Every Install Now workflow retry must be initiated from the web page. Also, try different browsers if you havent already done so.
After accepting EULA, wait the small <...>_Setup.exe to get downloaded. Keep the web page running. As soon the download of <...>_Setup.exe finishes, run it. Once it runs, it will obtain required information from the web page and then installer will launch.
Hope this helps.
I have been struggling with this issue for days now. I think it is awesome that they are giving their software away to students to learn on. Although it will come back to them later in sales. But for gods sakes...What a ton of greif. I have had all these same issues and there is still no actual fix. I tried firefox,,,,internet exploder,,, deleting every last file on my computer that isn't nesesary. down loaded every wich way,,,install now browser,,,every different year from 2012-2015,,,turned every inch of security off,,firewalls everything,,,
Sad DAy,, I love inventor....but I am giving up...I am going to have to use a sub par software,,,,If anyone ever actually figures out how to fix this communication issue please post it,,,Inventer is the best cad software on the planet if you can get a machine to run it....
I'm trying to download Inventor Pro 2015 and there is no option to "Download Now" there is "Install Now" and Browser Download". If I do Browser Download, it pulls up a window and says that There is a file missing or a corrupted file
