Failed installing Inventor 2014 trail version. Error inventor.msi

Downloaded Free Trail from Autodesk.com

While installing an error message appears, ref attachment:

 

 

The system cannot open the device or file specified.

D:\Temp_AID4CC.tmp\x86\inventor\inventor.msi

 

The file "inventor.msi" is in the specified folder but for some reason the installer cannot open this file. 

I'm using Windows 7 on a 64 bit system.

 

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the peer forums.

 

This is due to your antivirus program.

Thanks for your reply, Travis.

 

You may be right about the antivirus program. I have Trend installed. It's a company PC and they don't allow to disable or uninstall the virus scanner. It's PW protected so not accessible for me.

The second option, Setting Environment Variables to a different folder doesn's solve the problem either. I get the same error.

Any ideas???

 

Thanks

Unless you can disabled it in the services.msc, you will likely have to get IT to disable it for you during the install.
