I've downloaded (or at least it appears I have!) Inventor (Student Version) but it won't install. It look like it's installing then I get "Install Error - Network Failure" - this is an AutoDesk pop-up box not a windows error, my network is fine.
Could it be my spec - 1.6ghz, 4gb ram...I'm not sure if my graphics card is 3d either, I've try to find out!
Are you logged on as the user admin? What download method did you select from the Education Community? If you haven't already, can you try again with the browser download option and let us know if it resolves the issue?
I've tried to install it via browser download but no joy. I'll try again once I've got a better pc.
Also, who do I contact about my eligibility, I'm doing a City & Guilds Level 1 Autodesk Inventor Course (3 Hours per week)? On my profile it says 'Thames Gateway College' I've never even heard of the college!
Can you point me in the right direction?
Hello. When you install, do not install via browser, download the whole installation package and install from that. It may be worth checking your computer sleep settings. If you hibernate during a large download you will likely affect the integrity of the package. Don't use a wireless connection and switch networks if possible.
Thank you for taking part in our community!

As an alternative to the download managers utilized in the Download Now and Install Now options, you can try utilizing the standard Browser Download option. This should be located next to the others, and can also be found directly in the Autodek Virtual Agent under Download Links.

Ive been trying to download Inventor, i have windows 8, and when i start the install now option it will "connect to server", then all of the sudden a "open file" pop up appears, and asks me which program i want to use to open it. I have no idea what file it is thus, i dont know what to do. If i close it, it tells me it could not connect to server and it all fails. If i try browser download, when it is finished and i open it, it says a file or more are missing.
Please help me as soon as posible, here is a screenshot secuence of what happens.
