I am trying to install Autodesk Maya, a 3D graphics development program.
The first part of the installation gets hung up when it attempts to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable.
I figured I would install it separately, and I got this error message with every version of the software (x64, x86, x32, etc...):
Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly
"Microsoft.VC80.ATL,type="win32",version="8.0.50727.42",publicKeyToken="1fc9b3b9a1e18e3b" ,processorArchitecture="x86" Please refer to Help and Support for more information
I searched for information about the error, and tried many methods.
First I tried the Microsoft Fixit for Windows Update (apparently problems with windows update can cause this error), but that fixit was, ironically, the only one from the list which DID NOT work. It says that the version is outdated and to search for a more current version.
Next I tried a windows repair install from disk, and the repair install got at far as "Copying Windows Files" when it told me that the installation could not be continued. It then told me to restart and check for current updated.
I even tried making a separate admin account, and this, too, failed.
On an added note, I USED to be able to run this software since when I first got my computer, I installed Maya 2010 which uses the same software. I wish I had never uninstalled it.
Does anyone have a clue what to do? Let me know! I am on my last leg!
