Revit 2013 Trial Download

You can download Revit 2013 trial version before it is available on the Subscription site for certain Suite users... go figure?

EDIT Go to this link if you want to avoid using Akamai at all and download Revit 2013 directly

If you are having any trouble downloading Revit 2013 trial, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Control Panel, and remove Akamai NetSession Interface
  2. Click on this link, download the installer and run it
  3. In Explorer, browse to: C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\AppData\Local\
  4. Hold Shift, Right-click on the 'Akamai' folder and click Open Command Window Here
  5. At the command prompt, type:
    admintool clearcache
    Hit ENTER
    (leave the command prompt open)
  6. Start your download from the Trial download link
  7. Keep this command window open, and type admintool at any time to get an update on your download (speed / bytes downloaded).  To do this, type:
    admintool info http://trial.autodesk.com/SWDLDDLM/2013/RVT/ESD/Autodesk_Revit_2013_English_Win_32-64bit.exe
  8. You need to keep the Trial download window open in your internet browser too...
