Civil 3D 2009 Network Deployment Install Issue

I ran across this yesterday while helping out one of my co-workers. Civil 3D 2009 will not install from a network deployment if Autodesk DWF Viewer 6.5 or prior is installed. The Hydroflow products and the Survey Link install, but then the setup ends suddenly and without warning. We didn't know what the issue was until we tried installing C3D directly from the DVD. The DVD setup showed that the install could not continue without uninstalling DWF Viewer 6.5. It worked fine after that.

I have ran into this in both standalone and network installs. Removing the DWF viewer is the solution.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post the information you found with Civil 3D 2009 Network Deployment and Autodesk DWF Viewer 6.5. I was knocking my head against the wall trying to figure out why one of my client couldn't install the Civil3D network install. Uninstalling the DWF Viewer took care of the problem.
