I am attaching the setup and log files from my latest attempt at installing Revit Architecture 2013.
It seems that your installer is throwing some 1402 errors on the registry.
You might start here:
I have checked the permissions on all the registry keys that had a 1402. With most of them the subfolders did not exist. However, I would have thought with full control in the permissions for the parent folder, any required subfolders would have been created, but when I reran the setup, it still failed for those registery keys.
I then manually created the subfolders & rechecked permissions. All seemed fine. I tried yet again to reinstall after cleaning things up from the latest unsuccessful attempt at Revit 2013 installation.
I set the last install off as I went off to bed & this morning it had failed again. What is concerning is that the elapsed time was 8 hours.
I see in the installation log that there are still two 1402 errors. The one is for a key with a root folder that does not exist in the Registry & I cannot create a root folder. This is a 64 bit machine, so I do not uncerstand why the following registry key is required:
The only other registry key with a 1402 code is
The last two subfolders did not exist, so I have now created them.
However I am reluctant to set off yet another install if I am unable to create the first registry key which had a 1402.
I am attaching the installation log file for you to see if you can spot anything.
Monday is the last Revit Intermediate class I am attending and it seems I will still not have been able to have a copy to work with at home. A bit pointless really as if I ever get the software to install, the instructor would no longer be available if I had any questions with the software.
I am currently unchecking the option of installing the update to Revit, as I thought I just want to get the base version innstalled before it tries to apply an update.
I am attaching the last installation log.
Hope you can help.
I reran the installation this morning after creating subfolders Rollback/Scripts in Windows Registry. However, the two registry keys mentioned in my post above are still throwing 1402 errors.
Surely Revit 2013 should not be this complicated to install!
Revit 2011 installed without any issues.
Is it worth trying Revit 2014?
I have wasted many many hours & days on this and I am at my wits end.
Create a new Administrator A/C and install Revit 2014 from there. If incomplete installation click Uninstall Once, add Content and Australia, install. Revit will Slooowly download missing Content from the Internet (Autodesk) and say Installation Successful.
Is there anyone at Autodesk that can help???? I have had no more replies after acting on advice from Travis.
I have exhausted all options that I am aware of & I am still unable to install Revit2013!
I have even tried creating a new admin account and installing Revit2013 using this as Aus01 suggested, but that made no difference. I have not tried Revit2014 - if someone at Autodesk tech support think that may have fewer problems please let me know. I do not just want to spend more time trying different options. It is incredibly time consuming and very frustrating.
Hope to hear from someone soon!!!
Creating the reg keys won't do much. You need to replace the permissions from the parent to all the child keys. Typically I take ownership with the administrators group, then I replace the permissions with full control to the everyone user.
As you would see from my earlier posts, I only created the registry folders when setting permissions still didn't work. Doing this & checking the permissions on the new folders did get rid of all the 1402 errors, except the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE32 registry entry. (No such folder exists in Windows 7 Registry)
To recap what I have done now (since this last reply from you):
For each of the previous 1402 error messages:
Then I ran Microsoft Fixit - no problems detected
Thereafter I stopped ZoneAlarm & attempted another install of Revit 2013
The installation hangs with 'Preparing Revit Content' when there are 5 of 12 remaining & finally throws the 1722 error. Install log shows two 1402 errors. I have attached the log file.
Where do I go from here????
Ya gotta replace all the child permissions for full control to the everyone user. That will allow everything full control. The installer as well as your user.
