Error 1325: [filename] is not a valid short file name.

I have searched through all the other Error 1325 posts. None of them fit my exact situation. I recently got a new computer at work. Before it was added to the network and sch, I installed ACad LT 2013. When the IT guy finally makes it in, he creates an new user in a new domain and gives him access to the server and drives. So I made new shortcuts and such on my desktop and everything worked fine.


This morning I come in to my office and try to launch Acad LT 2013 and I get the 1325 error. I've made sure I have full admin rights, I did a registry clean, Uninstalled, Reinstalled. It's very frustrating. I have other things I need to do than battle with this issue. Please anyone! Help me!

So it worked fine and then did not.


What changed on the computer?

What did the wily IT guy do to it last night?

Do you allow automatic Microsoft updates?


These are the question that should be asked.
