I'm having trouble with the student version too. I managed to install it, but when I run it, I get the following error:
Inventor.exe - Application Error
The application was to start correctly (0x0000142). Click OK to close the application.
Looks like this could have to do with a .NET Framework issue. Take a look at this thread for additional troubleshooting steps.
If the problem persists, please respond to this post. Thank you!

Hello I have a similar problem, I;ve been able to download and install the Student Inventor Pro 2014 but I can't seem to get it to install properly. I've tried on two different machines (one running Windows 7 and the other running Windows 8.1, which meet the system requirements) both of which are giving me the error 0xc0000142 "the application was unable to start correctly" i have tried a repair and a reinstall and nothing seem to work. Please advise.
Hi NathanielMulder and welcome to the Autodesk Community!
Did you try all of the steps listed in my post above? Was there any change at all? Also, you'll probably have the best luck installing on the Windows 7 machine. Windows 8 is supported but we still have some issues with Windows 8.1.
