Recent Design Review Uninstall/Install Issues Related to Microsoft Visual C++ - Beyond the Paper

Recent Design Review Uninstall/Install Issues Related to Microsoft Visual C++ - Beyond the Paper

Autodesk Design Review customers are having trouble uninstalling and installing the latest three versions of our software because of Microsoft Visual C++.

Uninstall Issues

Some Autodesk Design Review uninstall issues are related to a recent Microsoft Windows fix (KB2538424 “Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update”). After applying that fix, customers report seeing these error messages when trying to remove Autodesk Design Review 2010, 2011, or 2012.

Additionally, customers are reporting that the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Redistributable is also triggering error messages when trying to uninstall Autodesk Design Review 2012.
