I've also got the X1600 Radeon graphic card.... still seems to be running fine. I will definitely report any problems I encounter, but so far since I've updated my OS, I haven't had any. One thing to consider is that people are more likely to report negative experiences than positive ones, and I can guarantee that for every person reporting problems here there are 500 people running the software with no issues at all....
Thanks for the graphic card info and true to the negative posts. The listing of MacbookPro versions on the system requirement's page by Autodesk simply caught me off guard and 2.2 seemed well below the recommended 5.1 or 6.1. I thought I'd check around before I upgrade my OS since Parallels works okay. Glad people post postives.
I have the same MacbookPro5,5 unibody here and I got the same thing: after installing, over and over, the only thing I can get is a bouncing icon on the dock with a very very fast flash of a splashscreen.
So, browsing around, I already tried to change the language, updating, downloading again and nothing.... but I saw now on the "knoledge base" the solution for a "AutoCAD for Mac splash screen never closes" and I gave it a try (go on terminal window and type: /Applications/Autodesk/AutoCAD\ 2011/AutoCAD.app/Contents/MacOS/AutoCAD -nologo)
Here's the thing:
On terminal window I got:
with that message the icon keeps bouncing and it just freezes there, nothing more happens. When I quit terminal, the icon stops.
Am I missing something on the installation? Because I think there's something missing on my folders!
Many thanks and I appreciate your help,
I realized that, in my case, the problem was that my hd was set for "Mac OS Extended CASE-SENSITIVE-Journaled".
AutoCAD and Adobe applications do not function properly on those file type HDs.
You just have to format your HD and with the Disc Utility choose only "journaled". If don't want to erase all your data, create a partition formated like that just to install AutoCAD (remember to choose that partition when installing it again).
Hope it helps someone.
It seems that I have installed AutoCAD on an unsupported MacPro (3.1). I guess this would explain the countless crashes i've experienced? When I installed, the installer stated 'This package will run a program to determine if the software can be installed' It installed fine so i assumed all was OK system-wise. Is my only option to revert my licence back to windows?
Here is what I'm running and I still cannot install this software.

IM using student version of autocad for Mac,I've download the update1 file,but when i wanna install it this error would appear:
""This version for AutoCAD 2011 for Mac requires Leopard with minimum version 10.5.8 or Snow Leopard with minimum version 10.6.4.""
my mac version is "Mac pro OS X version 10.6.3"
Model Identifier: MacBookPro6,2
Is there any way to update it?
Long term AUTOCAD user, very happy with MAC release and downloaded the trial verison onto my new iMAC, simply not worth the effort, all this chat about system specifications is complete stonewalling by AUTODesk, the update make what was a poor product now completly useless, having spoken to several architectural practices the release for the MAC is seen a an expensive joke.
Far easier to run VMware with a windows copy of AUTOCAd LT, stable and works. Why pay more for a product that causes loss of income and non billable time!!!!!!
