AutoCAD 2010 x64 Update SP2

Soooooo.... 

 

My CAD crashes every so often and the error reporter suggested I install service pack 2.  I am running the 64 bit version of Cad and of Windows 7.  When I download the 64 bit version it tells me "Cannot Install As This is not a Win32 version"  Then I try the 32 bit version and it also won't work.

 

WTF am I doing wrong?  Help?

Are you sure you didn't install the 32-bit version of AutoCAD in 64-bit Windows?

Nope.  I doubled chekced the disk and I used the 64 bit version.

 

Even if that was the case, I should then be able to use the 32 bit SP2 update which didnt work.

 

It still keeps on crashing.  Any thoughts.... anyone... help?

x64 is in the name of the downloaded file from Autodesk, there is no mistaking what you downloaded: are you just downloading the same wrong file instead?

The file I am downloading is

autocad2010update2x64.exe

 

I am using AutoCAD MEP 2010.  I dont see an update section for MEP so maybe that is the problem?  If so, why would the error reporter send me to that file.

 

The message I get is:

 

THE SERVICE PACK COULD NOT BE INSTALLED BECUAS THE EXPECTED AUTODESK PRODUCT COULD NOT BE LOCATED ON YOUR COMPUTER

The error message comes up when you are not using the exact version of AutoCAD the update is expecting: by chance is your R2010 seat part of a REVIT or INVENTOR package?

Or is this a vertical that is running "as AutoCAD"?

Did you ever resolve this issue? I am having the same problem with pack 1. It says it can't install without 'ACAD.MSI', but I put in the installation disk and "it could not be found". Any clue?

 

Thanks.
