    Help...student needs to install for homework....error 1603 Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SPI Redistributable ATL Security Update (86x)

    Brooke Buzynski

      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!
