I had a really strange problem with my installation of AutoCAD Architecture 2014...

When the language pack is installing, and almost completely ready installed the download rate which is seen on the installation screen drops clearly.

After about an hour the instalation failed with an error "can't installed" or something like that.

While the download rate in the installation window drops, the REAL download rate is constantely on the same niveau - full speed (on my connection).

And this download rate is caused by the "program"/"task"/etc. Akamai NetSession, which is in connection with the Installatioin of AutoCAD.


 The installation failed with the same problem a few times. My OS Win8 on my PC was completely refreshed when i tried it the first time.


What is wrong with my PC and how can i install this programm ?

Rename C:\Autodesk to C:\Autodesk2


Then re-download and install AutoCAD Architecture via a Browser Download from our Virtual Agent #3 here:

Thans a lot!

The hint of the download-option "Browser Download" solved my problem!

I only downloaded the language pack, installed them and AutoCAD is working fine now :smileyhappy:
