I am trying to download soldworks 2013 and Inventor and am receiving the same error. I just need help fixing. A google search told me to uninstall the C++ components but that isn't working because when I try and reinstall, it brings those components along with it when I try and install Solidworks again. I am in 10th grade and not too swift on computers but really need to get these programs installed. If anyone has a solution, could you help me with step by step instructions on how to fix. I have a brand new Windows 8 64 bit computer with plenty of memory.
Here is the error message:
Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable ATL Security Update (x64) Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603.
I was able to get it to install onto the desktop after I ignored the failed installation message but it was just the icon and nothing in the file
Thank you! I really appreciate it!
