I am trying to install autodesk 3d max but keep getting an installation error. It worked on windows 7 and windows 8 trail but upgraded to windows 8 a month ago and it will not install now, i have deleted all the files and folders linked to autodesk and uninstalled and reinstalled mincrosoft visual Redistributable but it still gets stuck on that.
You want to delete the C++ Redistributable and then install the software, as it the Autodesk installer will reinstall it for you, or if it doesn't, you can always get it from Microsoft or a Windows Update after the fact.
I also wanted to point out that not all products / versions of our software is supported to run on Windows 8 at this time. Please go here for a complete compatibility listing.
