For your first question, please open the Control Panel > Programs and Features and verify that the Content Service is not currently installed. If you see this listed in the list of installed programs, please select it and uninstall it before installing AutoCAD 2012.

For the second question, 1402 error is generally you do not have sufficient access to read or write some register key. I would suggest you to use a user with admin right to install,the system default user "Administrator" would be better。And also, we have some solutions on such problem for your reference:
