Hi Michele,

Do you have Adobe software (Illustrator, Photoshop) on your Mac?
BTW, there is no need to set default System language to English for AC 2013.

Then you can try the solution from my blog:

macacad.wordpress.com/2010/11/25/autocad-for-mac-and-adobe-software/

It is about AC 2011, but also applies to 2013.

I find no ‘FLEXnet Publisher’ folder in ‘/Library/Preferences/’.

What can I do?

Are you looking in Library folder in the root of Mac HD (not inside your home folder)?
Could you post an exception from Console log during AutoCAD launch?

Hi,

Have you checked free space on your HD? Looks like you are close to running low disk space. Not sure, but maybe it is the reason.
About FLEXnet folder- it should be inside Library/Preferences folder in the root of your HD if you have Adobe software or if you already work in AutoCAD on your Mac.

Hello,

 

I have the problem with my computer. I have tried removing the files you said, (flex... whatever) removing other elements you said in other questions and the list time I installed Autocad I did it as a trial, then it opened and said that it needed to be verified I entered my serial number and after that it said that it was ok but then it shut down. when I try to restart Autocad it brings up the start image but then it closes without saying a thing.

 

At the console this is what it appears:

 

4/12/13 8:12:11.677 PM [0x0-0x12e12e].com.autodesk.AutoCAD: set SkipExisting to true
4/12/13 8:12:11.689 PM [0x0-0x12e12e].com.autodesk.AutoCAD: Materials Configuration Not Found in the Bundle - Skipping
4/12/13 8:12:17.549 PM [0x0-0x12e12e].com.autodesk.AutoCAD: AcadDMSEHHELPER attach

And then it closes.
