Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)/(x64) Failed - Installation aborted, Result=1619 While installing autodesk 2012 products


Some of my friends are started using Autodesk 2012 products and almost everybody came across the error stated as in the title. In Autodesk forums everybody suggested a clean install.

  But that will me most painful thing when they have other prior versions on Autodesk products.

  After a bit of research i was able to help them out without uninstalling previous versions of Autodesk products. sharing the solution  may help my blog readers...


For all of my friends the Autodesk 2012 products failed because the setup failed to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)/(x64).  So i checked in installed programs to find the instances of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)/(x64) .

   surprisingly there were more that 6-7 instances of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005/2008 Redistributable (x86)/(x64) . So i decided to uninstall all of them through control panel.

  Once i removed all the instances of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005/2008 Redistributable (x86)/(x64) ,I re-registered msiexec.exe through the below command line options in command prompt.

msiexec.exe -unreg
msiexec.exe -regserver

Restarted the computer and started the installation again, Voila!! Installation finished without any error or warning message. Hope this helps..

The problem for me was not all the VC++s installed, but that the 2010 VC++ installer fails if a newer version is already installed, so the Autodesk installer fails.
I would recommend simply uninstalling the version of the offending VC++, not all of the VC++ (because some programs need specific versions)

I had the same problem i had to uninstall the 2010 VC++, but that didnt work, because i had installed AVIRA ANTIVIRUS who uses 2010 VC++ so uninstall your AVIRA ANTIVIRUS, then uninstall 2010 VC++ restart, install Autodesk product. It took me some time to figure it out :) Good luck
