This is the first time for me installing an Autodesk product and Revit Architecture 2012 won't finish installing, it gets stuck and no matter how long I leave it (I'm aware it might take a while) it won't keep loading...
As far as I can see there aren't any part of the product that have loaded onto my laptop and might disturb the installation...
I'm not that experienced in this sort of thing so I'm happy for any help I can get.
Make sure that you are installing as Administrator, UAC is off, and anti-virus is disabled. You might have better luck installing as a different user with local admin rights. Also, if you are installing off of media, consider copying it to a folder on your hard drive and installing from there as if it were a downloaded version. And if it still takes a long time but doesn't fail, you might just let it run all night to see if it comes out of it. ;-)
I removed the firewall and used Explorer instead of Google Chrome and it worked!
Downloading and first installation went smooth, but now I get the following message:
Error 1935.An error occured during the installation of assembly ‘Microsoft.V90.MFC,version=”9.0.30729.177”, publicKeyToken=”1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b”,processorArchite
What to do?
That's a problem with Microsoft Visual C++. Check your Control Panel for installed versions and remove them. The error happens because you are trying to install an older version than what is already installed. Removing it should resolve the issue. Then you can just let Windows Update take care of the rest afterwards.
I removed all the Microsof Visual C++ and ran the installation again, after a while it gave the same message and as I checked the Control panel there were 4 new Microsof Visual C++:s from 2005, 2008(x2) and 2010 that were installed on todays date, which I guess means that it's the Revit installation that installs them?
What can I do about it?
Well, in that case, you can modify the setup.ini file and remove the prerequisite checks for those programs. Save. Reinstall.
