We have Factory Design Suite 2013 and when we log onto the computer with a different user than the one who installed it we cannot save idw's as autocad DWG.  The real issue is the person who installed it is no longer with the company so if its a case of only one user is allowed to have that privilege how can i change that user.

To allow users full permissions to these areas below, Autodesk software needs full permission to:

Registry Entries:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER>SOFTWARE>AUTODESK
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>AUTODESK  *

Folders:
The folder the program was installed in c:\program files\AutoCAD 2011 (for example)

XP:
c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\Autodesk
c:\documents and settings\<the current user>\application data\Autodesk
c:\program files\common files\autodesk shared
c:\Program Files\Autodesk

Win7/Vista:
C:\Users\All Users\Autodesk
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared
C:\Program Files\Autodesk *
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk

try that
