Error creating client deployment

Jerry,
Before I wipe this drive, could it be a problem with the AutoCAD CD? I tried to copy this
same file from the CD onto a different computer and got the same error. However, I can copy the
existing file on the second computer to the original computer with no problem.
Also, the file system is NTFS on both systems.

Thanks,
Lori

Lori,

Try copying the file from the CD to a directory on another system. If that works, I think it is
safe to assume the CD is OKay. If it fails again, contact your dealer for a replacement CD as it
is conceivable that the CD has become physically damaged.
