I got a user who uses AutoCAD 2013 LT. He is not able to draw lines, type commands, select objects etc, in new and in existing documents (that other users can edit). I have reset the default settings and did a reinstall of AutoCAD through a package. This did not resolve it. He also does not get the "crosshair" you normally see when using AutoCAD.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is there anything the user can do other than open a DWG file?
If not time for a more aggressive repair.
Autodesk Recommended Clean Install Procedure:
Also the program REVO UNINSTALLER (Free) will do a better job in removing Programs than Windows uninstall.

I have seen this myself. The mouse is a regular mouse. clicking buttons work, the command is even visible on the bottom. I'm not able to type in any commands, select objects or place a line in an image. Other users are able to do this. normally there is a sort of crosshair visible when editing images.I have seen this crosshair on other machines that come with the same OS and AutoCAD installation (OS is done by imaging, AutoCAD by package)
Yes the user is using Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit. I changed the Aero theme to Windows Basic theme. I'm not able to type any commands in LT2013. That option is not working.
..and plug the mouse and keyboard back in while you're at it!
Same thing just happened to me in AutoCAD 2012. Mouse and keyboard works fine in AutoCAD menus and all other programs, but not in the graphical area of AutoCAD, I cannot enter a command except for [spacebar}/enter nor mark, select, left or right click with the mouse. Everything worked fine two days ago but when I started up today this situation appears.
