uninstalled trial version AutoCAD LT 2014, can't install full version of CAD

I had a trial version of AutoCAD LT 2014 installed in my iMac, and my company had decided to not purchase a license for it, but instead we were going to try AutoCAD (regular) 2014 because of some additional features.

I tried uninstalling the LT version, but I keep getting error messages that say "Another instance of Autodesk 360 is running. Please close any instances before proceeding"
I had dragged the Autodesk 'application' to the trash folder, and searched for any Autodesk folders in the "Library" in my finder, but I still keep getting the message. So now I can't install a new version of AutoCAD. What am I missing, and how can I fix this? Are there some hidden folders that I am missing?

Carapie,

 

You have to stop the running service before you can uninstall. Here are the steps for getting into the processes.

 

  1. Open the Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/).

    Tip: Before Mac OS X 10.3, this utility was named Process Viewer.

  2. Choose All Processes from the Show pop-up menu.
  3. Locate the background application "AdSync" and stop it.

Thanks,

I had a trial too and saw your response.  I opened Utilities but did not find show processes,pop up or adsync.

Any suggestions?
