I finally got Inventor 2012 updated to SP1 by using the Autodesk Live Update instead of the msi download file.
Nothing suggested here helped to get the msi download to work.
I've no idea why the Live Update worked and the msi download wouldn't.
The error should be a rare event on only XP32bit, and I never see it again once encounter it on a machine.I means I can install SP1 successfully after cancelling the first failed install.
You can also do this:
-Start Inventor 2012 Sp0
-Start installing Sp1 (while Inventor is running)
-Close inventor when the installation require it, and click resume.
I had the same problem with the registry key error trying to install SP1 on a 32-bit XP SP3 computer. Yes, I have admin rights. Not sure why SP1 seems to have an incorrect path for the registry key it wants to edit.
All of my 64-bit XP SP3 computers had no issues with their copy of SP1.
Having Inventor running while I installed SP1, and then closing Inventor when prompted, let me finally get the 32-bit SP1 installed. Thanks!
I have the same problem with XP 32-bit, tried downloading the msi three times.
I tried installing with Inventor open and then the installation compeleted without thorowing any errors.
Doesn't anybody noticed that the path from the error message is incorrect because contains double backslash?
The popup complains something you don't have sufficient access to the path.
- yes, that's correct, because the specified path doesn't exist!
That's just Autodesk fault. On my Win XP SP3 32bit it works to start installing the SP1with runned Inventor and right after few seconds close the Inventor.
