I ran the installation that I downloaded from the Students part of the site. The install goes as far as putting in the product code, after that it gives an error. (refer to the attachments)

Someone help me out? I can give my computer specs and other things, just reply. 

Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86) Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603

 

You need to uninstall your Visual C++ from Control Panel > Programs and then run your installer again.

Start with just the 2010 versions.  If you get failures for others, then do the same.  You should be fine as this is a common issue.  The Autodesk installer and Windows Update will put back the versions after you remove them, so there's not a lot ot be worried about.

Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable ATL Security Update (x64) Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603

 

Make sure you don't have any C++ 2005.  If it still fails, seeif you can perform the necessary update manually from Microsoft before you install.

Okay, well remove all the 2005 instances and do not replace them.  Run the Autodesk installer and let it install the versions it wants.
