Inventor Professional 2014 installation stuck

I've tried numerous times with installing Inventor, using all three methods, but all three have failed with the same issue - attatched photo.

I am installing on a fresh OS install of windows 7 64bit, all updates installed, including .NET framework 4.5, with UAC and antivirus disabled. The logs for install and setup are attached.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Hi Michael,

 

I've been tracking an issue with inventor installs being blocked by AVAST antivirus. Do you happen to have that installed? You can find details on the below threads

Are you cancelling the installation?  Inventor required additional files to be downloaded during install, so you have to be patient if it seems stuck.

 

Thanks for using the forums.

michael.ly,

 

First, let’s try to download the complete file via this method.

 

  1. Go to http://www.autodesk.com
  2. At the bottom of the page, beneath "Help and Support" click "Customer Service"
  3. Click the "Ask" button for the "Virtual Agent"
  4. Once the Virtual Agent opens, click "Downloading and Installation"
  5. Click "Software Download links"
  6. Click "I need to redownload my product"
  7. Select the appropriate product and download

 

Next, I took a look at your log file and there are no outright failures in the file. I was expecting to see something, but the file just drops off. So, I have some basic things to consider:

 

  • Uninstall the NET 4.5 on your machine and let the product install it
  • Make sure Antivirus is completely off
  • Make sure you are logged in as an Administrator
  • If you have any malware blockers or third-party popup tools, turn them off
  • Check your Windows Event Viewer to see if you can identify any failing modules or libraries

 

Thank you for taking part in our community!

Still freezing at download using the process above. No signs of errors in event viewer during install.

 

I left the install for almost 4 hours with the installation still stuck at the same point, cancelled the installation through task manager.

 

I still have my old hard drive that has inventor installed onto it, if I can't get Inventor to install onto my current C drive, is there any way I could run Inventor off of the old hard drive (the old hard drive was not connected during installation)

 

thanks for the help

In some cases I have found disabling the Antivirus did not resolve the problem. A full uninstall of the antivirus software was required. I beleive that was limited to Avast. What antivirus software are you running?
