New Sager computer, Win 7 all updated, no virus software.
Revit 2013 downloads to default folders, c: autodesk for setup and downloads folder for exe, but get Communication Faliure error when I run the exe.
Don't get what I'm doing wrong, not changing any folders, it should know how to install it self. Yes, my interernet is on and working.
I have tried freshly downloading 3 times. over 3 days incase server was wonky. No firewall on this side.
Thank you, zowie

I'm having the exact same issue when trying to install 3ds Max Design 2013 or Autocad 2013. I have a Sager 9280 laptop w/ clean install of Windows 7 Pro 64.
The last cause listed on your attached image suggests that a firewall could be blocking the necessary ports. Have you tried temporarily disabling your firewall or opening up ports 80 and 443?
It seems to have resolved when I added a mail client. It seems it needed a default mail client so it could communicate.
Perhaps this is why it didn't work on two new comptuers.
I am getting this same pop up. I am using windows xp and have disabled firewall. How can I resolve this problem?
Whats a mail client? As in.. outlook? Do i have to install that to get this installed? Im getting the communication error...
i have open port 80 and 433 and also disable firewall but still doesnt work....How can i resolve it? can you fully amswer in a simple step structure please thanks
How is installing a mail client a solution to this problem???
I have been trying over 5 days to install, I have disabled my antivirus and firewall. I have also tried the "browser download" and got a crappy lmza2 file. This problem is not exclusive to Revit either - i am having exactly the same issue with autocad 2013.
This is not good enough autodesk, Im going to try and find a torrent.
