We have had only a few reports on this interesting error with many possible ideas on the solution. In this case, the installation of Revit 2013 worked on other computers running Windows 7 but only 1 computer had this error:
The customer looked at the error message dump from windows see if there were any logs referring to a program launch and it was pointing to .NET. In this case, the solution was very easy, they repaired .NET.
Here is a solution for an old Maya error message that is sure to cause a similar "huh"...
