  • Have you tried to install AutoCAD as Administrator?

    You can also install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (x86) package alone before you install the software.

  • Shahab,

    Please first check if the version of your AutoCAD is compatible with Windows 10:

    Windows compatibility center:


    Also, try to install it in Windows compatible mode:

    Right click the installer>Choose Properties>Under Compatibility tab>Choose OS

  • You need to contact AutoDESK.

    According to their website Microsoft® Windows® 10 (requires AutoCAD 2016 SP1).

    This is an AutoCAd problem.  Not a Windows 10 problem!

  • I have the same problem , and its no just with some autodesk installations , also happend to me when installing CITECT SCADA , the installations will fail when trying to install Visual C++ 2008 redistributable x86. I re-install windows and came to the same , I have tried lots of different things like uninstalling all the visual C++ and installing again , but nothing will help. There is lots of threads about this problem on several forums including the Autodesk and several windows but no solution till now. I am using a new Dell PC (3 month old) running Windows 10 pro version 1909 OS build 18363.836 , I have all the logs from the fail installations
