While installing ReCap pro trial it encountered an error immediately with install the 2008 C++ Redistributable. It turns out the error was that it was not included with the extracted files.
Copied the file from a different installation and added it in a the correct path. Installed with no errors.
In the error message the installer specifies which VC redistributable it wants to install and where it is looking for it. When I checked that path it turned out both the folder and VC redist. was missing, so i created the requested folder and downloaded the correct VC redist. (in my case I think it was the 2010 service release 1 x86) from microsoft to the folder I had created. Ran the installer again (directly from the c:\\Autodesk folder where the files had been unpacked) and everything went smoothly. Hope this helps.
I can't believe this hasn't been fixed.. I spent a large amount of time trying to get Recap Pro to install. I would think a new download file would be released with the correct files for install.
I've been jerking around with this for a week. I'll attempt to unravel the explanation and make it work. It's insane that we have to go through this. Not very VIP or customer oriented. A bulletin and detailed guideline from AutoDesk would be nice.
On the initial failed install, the log listed "C:\Autodesk\yada\yada\yada\2008SP1\vcredist_X86.e
As you can see in thre attached, I have in in there. Still won't install.
What is going on here?
If you go to the microsoft website or google search these two programs:
Microsoft C++ Redistributable 2008 (x86) SP1
Microsoft C++ Redistributable 2010 (x86) SP1
Then download and install them, the program will finally install. I have no idea why Autodesk hasn't included these files in the installer. Pretty big oversight.
The error message 1603 with it is a generic error that could be a lot of things.
As JeffT said. Try redownloading it from MS site and installing it manually on the machine it's failing on.
I would still copy it to the missing folder as well.
