AutoCAD LT for Mac "The installation failed"

"The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance"

 

System:

MacBook Pro 6,2 with OS X 10.8.2

 

Installation (newest package downloaded from the internet)

AutoCAD_2013_English_Mac_OSX_R1.dmg

 

/Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/FLEXnet/ shows no Autodesk Licence (although I bought one), only the Adobe CS4 licenses.

 

What I tried and didn't work for me:

Renaming the FLEXnet Publisher and uninstalling and installing AutoCAD LT again (as suggested in other forum entries)

I tried the above also with the AutoCAD trial, it did not work.

There are also no saved states from AutoCAD, which could prevent start-up or anything like this. (as suggested in other forum entries)

There are no hidden files in the FLEXnet publisher directory as well (I deleted them).

 

Any other suggestion?

 

Thanks!

Closed: The problem were the rights in the file system. A repair of the access rights on the respective volume with Disk Utility did the job! I had only to uninstall & then the reinstallation worked without problem.

 

Thanks!
