I have seen this topic before, but are completely stuck after looping thruough the options.

2011 Hanged, then I installed 2013, which does the same. I do have single license for student for both products and installed standard, which is single.


CascadeInfo.cas Is not on the computer anymore. What gives to solve this?

I recently had an issue with a number of computers behaving in a similar fashion. what i did to resolve it was as follows


Removed all Visual C++ redist. from add remove programs and then ran the .Net cleanup utility to remove all versions of .Net. after a reboot, all versions of Visual C++ redist were reinstalled on the computer, as well as .net 4.0


Our problem was caused by security updates to the .net framework 4.0 so all .net 4.0 updates were hidden and Not run! so far all machines are running normally.

I'm having the same problem here with Civil 3D 2013 and 2012. I'm trying to run it in Windows 7 64 bit through parallels. If I ctrl+alt+del and try to run it again I get stuck in the same place and just freezes in the checking license part.


If anyone can offer any help that would be great, thank you.
