Hi all,

I have installed Design suite prem. 2014 previously. Kept 2013 to reference until not needed. Stupid files kept defaulting to 2013 so i removed it. Lost all file associations to all autodesk products still installed (dsp 2014 ). Decided to repair. Didnt help. Decided to remove it. Used the autodesk uninstall tool.

Now i get the titled error upon install. It only installs about 1/4 of the software i select and none of the shared files. Its driving me crazy.

Any help would be swell, thanks ya!

Hello there,


I managed to install a student version quite some time ago

by deleting all the prerequisites from the install script. That´s

easily done in any editor that features search and replace.

It also could be because of the c++ redistributable. I had the

pleasure encountering both problems. The last several times

I just removed the packages and the installation worked after-

wards. It´s the 2010 versions of the runtime I removed.


Are you getting red crosses in the installation routine or are

you getting a different error message?


Did you think about simply reassociating the files in Windows?


Hope this helps



Kind regards

Here is what I get.


Firstly (during install)




Then it continues trying to install other products. Then I get at the end;






Now, if you have a way to identify the runtime files so I could know what to remove, that would be great!


With the re-assosciating, I tried that first and foremost after I removed 2013. It would not do it. Wouldnt even allow me to add 2014 to the list to try and associate it. I was very frusterated (even more so now!) and thought this should be a painless way to fix my problem....boy was I wrong!

OMG! I found the solution!


Found this thread


Taking you to this link


Tried revo uninstaller pro (great program but didnt cut it!)


So I went on to the devil (Microsoft Fix it)


And when you run the executable it asks you what program didnt install correctly, in my case I selected the program from the installer that it gave up on (Acad Mechanical) and it did whatever it does, I re ran the installer and BAM! Randy is happy once again!! :smileyhappy:


All this for a file association issue.


I hope this helps someone in the future.... :smileyhappy:


Have a great weekend all!! Thanks for the input!
