Hello Bolton,

You will need to make sure that you have got the latest version of the .Net Framework installed on your computer for it is required for the installation of Revit to be successful. You may also consider try running the Windows Update a number of times and then confirm to ensure that all the .Net Framework updates have been installed successfully.

It may be Windows that is causing the Revit Installer to crash before it even starts successfully. So, in case you have already got .Net Framework installed on your computer, you will need to try installing .Net Framework version 3.5 which has been known to work well for Revit.

The first solution that I will give is to log in with the Administrator permission, not yours. Then check if you have any problem. If is not, please check that your antivirus is disable.

The second solution if the first has not worked is to uninstall the ''Displaylink Core Software''. You can do that by going to the programs, you find the ''DisplayLink software'' and click to uninstall.

Before installing any application on your computer, always check the system requirements to make sure your computer is fully compatible so you will not be wasting money for a product that will not work on your computer. This is also a good way of learning if your system requires upgrading.

For the system requirements, Autodesk Building Design Suite 2013 supports Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 32-bit only, Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 or higher 64-bit, and Windows 7 (Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition) both 32-bit and 64-bit. Microsoft Windows Vista is not supported.

For the hardware, it requires at least Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz or faster processor or AMD Athlon Dual Core with SSE3 support, 2 GB RAM, 24-bit graphics adapter with 256 MB video RAM with Shader Model 3 and Microsoft DirectX 10 support, 1280 x 1024 True Color screen resolution, 24 GB free hard drive space, Windows Internet Explorer 8 or higher, USB 2.0, and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.

Since you didn’t mention anything about your computer specifications, please review the details above. You can also visit System Requirements for Autodesk Building Design Suite 2013 for a much detailed information. Also, if you are using Microsoft Windows Vista, either shift to Windows XP or upgrade to Windows 7 to use the program.
