Problem Installing AutoCAD 2010 on Win 7 32 bit

I'm attempting to install AutoCAD 2010 32-bit via a network deployment, and I keep running into some errors that I'm having some trouble understanding.

Shortly after initiating the install, the progress meter for installation of the 2008 Visual C++ Redistributable appears, and it's progress bar goes into a sort of endless loop: it fills up, disappears, fills up again, and so forth.

The %TEMP% directory on the computer on which I'm trying to install AutoCAD 2010 contains two log files associated with the install. I've attached both of them to this message. The more detailed logfile says that there is an "assembly error" of some sort. The research I've done on this so far has suggested that this might involve a problem with the Microsoft .NET Framework, so I have installed and run the .NET Framework Cleanup Utility. Unfortunately, running this cleanup didn't have any effect on the next installation attempt.

I've also installed the Windows Installer Cleaner, but I can't see anything in the list of installations that seems to be associated with the AutoCAD 2010 or Visual C++ installation, so I haven't selected any installations to remove.

I'd be sincerely grateful for any help you might offer on this.

Thank you very much.

1) Is win 7 a supported platform ?

2) Can you test on another WIn 7 machine - preferably clean install or a VM ?

I hope this helps !

For error 1603 autodesk suggests you not run in silent mode:

Was Visual Studio installed on this machine?  Or perhaps SQL Server/SQL Server express?  I've ran into some issues when they were installed - this hotfix took care of some issues when trying to install the 2008 redistributable...

Hi. How are deploying? Via startup script? Did you try to install interactive using the silent (preconfigured) setup?

Thank all of you for your responses.

SysExpert:

Windows 7 is a supported platform for AutoCAD 2010.

I did an install on another machine running Windows 7, and the install completed without a problem. (I should have mentioned this in my original question -- my mistake). So, it's clear that the problem is with the machine onto which I'm trying to deploy the software. I just can't seem to figure out what that problem is.


gikkel:

Neither Visual Studio nor SQL Server was installed on this machine. I'll investigate the hotfix -- thanks very much for pointing me to it.


McKnife:

I'm trying to install interactively in silent mode. In response to gikkel's comment above, I've disabled the silent mode, but I haven't had a chance to re-try the installation.

Did you locate this log....1928953848ndir\logs\cbs\cbs.log


Also, don't repair the .Net framework. Uninstall it completle, then reinstall it.

Since none of the other things I tried worked, I eventually resorted to simply re-installing the Windows 7 operating system. Once I'd done this, the installation of AutoCAD 2010 completed without a hitch.

Thanks very much to all of you who posted comments.

With other instances in which this sort of bug has emerged, users have been asked to indicate how they'd like the points to be awarded, so I'll go ahead and explain how I'd like the points to be divvied up:
