Solved! Go to Solution.
One: Windows 8 CONSUMER PREVIEW. In other words, its not released yet, let alone supported by anyone, including Microsoft.
Two: 4 GB RAM is less than ideal for running just 64-bit Windows, let alone a RAM-hungry design application like AutoCAD.
"Without a Net" had this to say about it yesterday:
I was getting the same error with my AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 x64 on Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64. The solution is:
1. open Notepad as Administrator (important!)
2. open the file: "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2012\acad.exe.config" (you will have to select "All files" from the open dialog box to see that file)
3. in the 3rd line - "<startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">" change "true" to "false". leave everything else as it is.
4. save the file.
5. Start AutoCAD 2012.
NOTE: the above steps helped me for AutoCAD Mechanical 2012. if this doesn't help or if some other error occurs then just revert that "false" to "true".
Hope this helps.
