AutoCAD 2010 - Installation failed - adui18RES.dll not found

Hi,

 

I've spend way too many hours after getting adui18Res.dll error message afted installing AutoCAD 2010. I've done a lot of searching and followed many instructions, but every time intalllation is failing. I received a new laptop few days ago and there is only Office package installed so there shouldn't be any problem causing software installed.

 

Does anyone have any kind of fix that really works or should I ask It to re-install whole Windows 7 and try again intall AutoCAD?

 

 

This didn't help

neither did this

I also get error 1606. Could not access network location setup.

 

The whole situation is jsut mental as I'm not able to unistall AutoCAD from control Panel, it gives more errors so the oly way to uninstall is to use Revo Uninstaller.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, this is really doing my head in.

Did you install from a  remote shared folder? How about try to copy all the installation files into your local hard disk and then install?

It would be better to remove all the Autodesk products to insure you have a clean system before reinstallation as metioned in our solution: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=2887771&linkID=9240617#section3

 If you have any problem during the uninstallation, you can use Microsoft fix tools: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall#smchome#enduser.

Hope that helps.

Okay, IT insalled Windows 7 from scratch and now AutoCad 2010 64-bit has been installed.

 

The next problem is that CAD Integrator won't work on it as it's 32-bit software. I found following solution to run 32-bit AutoCAD on 64-bit system

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Installation-Licensing/Can-we-run-AutoCAD-2010-32-bit-AND-AutoCAD-2010...

 

Or other option is go to back to IT and ask them to change everything to 32-bit and after that what would I do with 8GB of memory when 6GB of it won't be useable.

I guess I should start a new thread regarding this, but at the moment I'm a bit confused this is happening and it's already year 2011 and we still have struggle between 32-bit and 64-bit OS/software related problems.

I would say sorry to you but now we don't support 32 bit AutoCAD installed to 64 bit system officially.
