This isn't any direct help but you could enable auditing on the acad installation folder
to see what files are being accessed and in what order.
When you say hang do you mean that it gets to the splash screen and just stays there
forever??? Is there any type of error message???
From your description I would guess it to be a license retrieval problem, but I can't even
tell you why I think that. Try turning up logging on your adlm server and see if anything
shows up there.
sorry I'm not more help
