I've been using Autodesk's AutoCAD and other Autodesk programs on Windows 7 for quite some time. They're great programs, especially with them being free for education.
So naturally I wanted to use them in Windows 8. Unfortunately, the installer didn't work, failing to install every time I tried.
Here's the error:
Is it possible to install these on Windows 8 Consumer Preview or should I just boot into Windows 7?
P.S. Please do not tell me that I'm using pre-release software. I know. I'm the kind of person that likes to get into the new stuff. I don't care if it eats my dog and microwaves my grandmother as long as I can try out new stuff.
