Morning,

 

I received  Autodesk Product Design Suite Premium 2012. I'm trying to install and it's saying that I need Hotfix KB971138 for Vista. I can't seem to locate the download link. I found a page that autodesk directs you too, but there's no Link that I can find. Has anyone been through this and found the fix?

 

System

Core i7 950 @ 4ghz

Asus P6T X58

Corsair Dom 6gig 1600mhz

Evga Gtx 260

Win Vista 64bit Ult

Microsoft isn't helping at all. They keep giving me the run around.

Hi,

 

I got the download file OK.  Mine is the x86 version.  When I try to unzip the file, I am told it is part of a multi disk zip file and it asks me to insert the last disk of the set.  I am not presented with any options except OK and CANCEL.

 

What should I do to work around this problem?

Go ahead and put the last disk in and hit OK. Then you should be fine. The confusing part was, I was looking for a hotfix KB971138. That's not the name of the download when you request it, but it's the one you need. Worked perfect after a little messing around.

 

Good luck!!

 

2012 Inventor is pretty nice so far. I'm really liking it. No issues so far.
