I'm trying to install AutoCAD 2012 onto my computer (I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit) but each time it comes up saying that it failed to install. An error appears about half way through installation and then the number of items installed appears to go down (i.e. whereas it might have said before that 5 out 10 are left to install, it will then say that 6 are left, then 7 etc). I have tried to install the 2011 version, but this also had the same problem. I have copied the installation log below and would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
