    RAC 2012 install gone badly wrong

    I tried leaving Revit 2012 to install overnight as it seemed to be stuck on '5 of 17 remaining'.

    This morning I find that my C: drive is full and Revit is not installed.

    The setup dialogues showed 64GB available and requiring around 5GB so how it has used up all that space I don't know - and worse, I cannot see what is filling the space.

    It's a 128GB SSD if that makes any difference - Win7 64 OS

    Anyone else had this, or any suggestions where my missing disk space has gone?

    I dont think its Revit's fault. Try to see what is the biggest folder in your C: and see what it contains.

      I installed on a similar disk yesterday, and it was flawless...

      Don´t believe it had to complete 17 steps though... think is was only 10?

        Thanks, I'll have a look...

        Ah... it was the Revit 2012 install log... 62GB !!

        Weird - I'll try again later.

          Probably Revit tried to do something, got an error and wrote it in the log. And then tried again..and again and again...until it reached a 62GB text file.

            I have encountered a few issues.

            Firstly, I tried Browser download, that downloaded the whole thing, then threw "Cannot Save File". The downloaded Archive was corrupted.

            Secondly (after burning all my remaining bandwidth) I used the download manager and secured the installer. When installing, I configured the content I wanted installed, then found no content after install.... I tried adding/removing the uninstall/reinstall to the default locations. The correct folders (Templates, library, IES, etc) yet no content.....

            Wierd!

              I've just tried reinstalling and it failed again - stopped at '5 of 9 remaining' this time.

              Fortunately I was on hand so that the log had only grown to 12GB this time!

              I also don't seem to be offered a choice on where to install data.

              Definitely something a bit strange going on - I've disabled anti-virus etc but I'll maybe have a further look over the weekend.

                Have you tried downloading Revit again? Maybe something went screwy during the initial download?

                  I'll try again later - I did use a Download Manager but you never know.

                  The Revit 2012 installation is fine until it reaches the line:
                  cp_install: fdintNEXT_CABINET
                  name of next cabinet where file continued =


                  and that repeats forever...

                    I've seen it seem to stop at 5 of 9 or 5 of 16 - I think this is where you would traditionally see the content being downloaded from the internet - so it looks like it isn't doing anything since their is no notifier of what it is doing anymore. It even shuts down the windows explorer shell so that the only thing up is the install window. Eventually it finishes though.
