I bought a new laptop (Samsung ATIV 8 Windows 8) yesterday and I am un able to install AutoCAD 2013. I keep getting Microsoft Installer Error v5.0.9200.16384. and then every product (AutoCAD 2013, Inventor, Inventor Fusion plug in) fail to install. I have tried the following with no luck.
a. From the Start screen, type computer.
b. Right-click or swipe down on Computer, and then tap or click Manage.
c. In the console tree, tap or click Services and Applications, and then tap or click Services.
d. In the details pane, right-click or swipe down on Windows Installer, and then tap or click Start.
a. Right click on the set up file and select Properties then tap or click on the Compatibility tab.
b. Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode box.
c. Tap or click the drop down box and select a previous Operating System, then tap or click OK.
I have exactly the same problem trying to install Revit 2014 or 2015 on a new laptop. I have tried with the serial number as well as a trial version. I just cant get past the windows installer V5 error message. Did you manage to figure out the problem? I'm desperate!
