I have recently successfully installed a trial-/student-version of the AutoCAD Architecture 2014 software, and the program runs perfectly fine without errors, bugs or glitches (that I have noticed so far). However, every time I log into my computer (Windows 7), the following two windows appear:
>"Please wait while Windows configures AutoCAD Architecture 2014 - English."
>"Run Setup.exe to install AutoCAD Architecture 2014 - English."
This occurs again after clicking 'OK' to the second window, closing both. I can't seem to find any reason why this would happen, in the settings of AutoCAD, or in a list of programs set to start on log-in, or online. I'd really appreciate some help in stopping this.
Welcome to the peer forum.
Do you have :
1. Roaming profiles?
2. Local Admin rights?
Do you get it if you right-click and run as Administrator?
Sometimes installing Office or udpates moves your user to Debugger user for some strange reason. You might double-check that your user is still Administrator. Weirder things have happened.
It could also still be a user rights issue. You haven't moved any of your profile folders to a different drive or removable disk, have you?
I apologise if I wasn't clear the first time, but I mean that the two windows for installation appear as soon as I log into my account (the only and administrative account on this computer); the program runs absolutely fine and without problem when logged in, it is just the windows popping up on start-up. The windows for installation appear without me clicking on anything, as though they are set to run on log-in.
Could be. Anything in your startup group? Still thinking it is permissions related.
The only two start-up programs I could see that seemed related to AutoCAD were the Autodesk Sync (AdSync.exe) and AcShellExtension.AcContextMenuHandler (AcShellExtension.dll). Disabling both of these for start-up (to see what happened) yielded nothing, and the boxes still appeared.
I still can't find any permissions-based issues. Any suggestions where options could be in AutoCAD itself, if a solution lay there?
perdon ami tambien me pasa lo mismo y yo los movi de carpeta lo pade la unidad C A A LA D y por ende ya no me quiere abrir autocad que solucion tengo porque vuelvo y descargo autocad para estudiantes y no me da porfavor gracias.
Hello. It sounds like you have incorrect permissions on certain user folders. Check to make sure you have full access to these locations.
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared
Past this, I would create a new user account on the machine and test to see if the behavior persists.
