I am trying to install the student version of Revit 2012 on windows 7 and I through the serial number part, but as it installing, it just aborts. When I look at the installation log, I see errors 1603 and 1619. I check some solutions here and re-installing windows was what one person did, but I cannot do that.

Solved! by bishara. See the answer in context.
IT FINALLY WORKED!!!
I did your suggestion along with some help from Geek Quad at Best Buy. Thanks so much for your help!
1603 is generic permission error, please try to install the software in diagnostics mode as described here
If the issue persists, please post the all the log files from the %temp% folder (start->run/search->type %temp% ->Enter) as a zip file.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I tried the diagnostic mode and it still failed. I attached here the installation log so you can see the errors.
Please let me know if you have ideas.
Still not working for some reason. I looked at my control panel and it shows Visual C++ 2005 Redist to be installed.
I have attached the new installation log.
This time when I tried to install, a popup came up right before installation attempted. The popup said windows installer has failed.
error in the log is still about
Installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable
Please uninstall all VC++ components and install it manually as described in the other posts
I tried it. I uninstalled all VC++ components and then installed from the microsoft website.
It is still providing the same errors. Could I be installing the wrong versions? I am using these links:
Assuming the error is still about VC++ runtime
Links are almost correct for 32 bit OS. (except for the 2008 one)
Have you done a complete windows update ?
Have these installations gone through successfullly ? if yes
Another option would be to clean all the VC++ components and let the revit installer do this part.
If it fails, please post the detailed logs from the %temp% folder for the vc++ part.
Still not working.
I removed all vc++ components and let revit install them. It did not work. It only installed 2005 and 2008 and then failed.
Then when I try to get you the temp files, the only folder in the Temp folder that is related to VC++, is VC++2010. And there are some 2010 related text docs, but I can't open them???? It says access denied.
Can I get in touch with anyone at Autodesk to help me? Maybe with a shared screen to solve the issue?
I really need to get this installed so I can do some work for my class.
Were you able to install VC++ 2010 manually ?
