I've been trying to install Archicad 14- 64 bit. I have been running A14-32 on this system for a long time. I know my computer is able to run the program (windows 7, 8g RAM, proper video card, enough memory, etc.). I am able to download the program. It shows up as an .exe file. The file is not corrupted. When I click on the program, it states that it needs to extract the file and then the install wizard will start. I can see that it starts to extract but then the installer never shows. I read in another place that the problem may be my java program and I uninstalled that and rebooted. I am running the educational version so I do not have any CDs, it is just a download. I also have uninstalled the 32 bit version already. Does anyone have any suggestions?
If you run installer from remote (network) disk, copy installer to local disk before.
When you unpack installer, uncheck option to delete extracted files and specify output folder. Then run installer (setup.exe) from that folder directly.
You may also check process list (using task manager) to verify if installer launched OK. In addition, check memory and CPU usage by installer to verify that it's executing and performing some tasks.
