Obviously this is a frequent problem -
XP Pro, SP3
However I cannot find a fix? Is there one? I am trying to install Autodesk Inventor Suite from USB, and I KEEP GETTING THIS ERROR ON INSTALL - "Cannot update system components now. Please reboot the machine and try again."
Things I have tried -
2. Different account (admin, both domain and local)
3. Downloading trial from Autodesk, installing
4. Complete removal of .NET, reinstall
5. Enabling updates (mentioned in thread)
It installs just fine on other machines, same enviroment. I cannot find a "checklist" of system components needed for Inventor to install correctly; I've read from other threads it needs .NET, C++ Redistributable, that's about it.
Is there anything I can do without wiping the machine? Is there a checklist for versions of components required for Inventor to run?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi! This is new to me. Did you try copy the content in the USB drive to a local harddrive and then install from the harddrive?
Possible virus that is not allowing the Windows Registry to be updated could be a problem as well.
Or disable any Anti-Virus software (may require the stopping of it's services).
Just finished removing Trend Security from the PC, updating all .NET framework's via this list - http://www.askvg.com/what-is-microsoft-net-framewo
Is there an install log/error log I can view to see a more specific error as to what exact "component" it can't update?
Hi! The install log can be found in \Temp\ directory. Please let me know if you find it and what it says about the failure.
Are you telking about %temp% from the C:? or does autodesk have another location? What kind of files am I looking for? *.txt, are they named "error log"...?
