measure distance command does not work

I started to use AutoCad 2012 for student (my pc is windows vista business 32bit, service pack 2) .  And I had a hard time installing it. I am not sure it is because of that but every time I open AutoCad, I see the sign says " the drawing file eing opened was not created by a product from an Autodesk Education suite."  If you save this drawing, it will always be plotted with the follwing plot stamp: PRODUCED BY AN AUTODESK EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT it is recommended that you save this drawing with different file name.""

I don't really understand what this means.


I also have problem with using measure (distance). the line does not appear. My teacher said there should be. so, maybe broken?

The plot stamp warning is exactly what it says. When you plot, it will include a plot stamp because this is a STUDENT version. Your instructor knows about this, it's no big deal.


Regarding your usage of the DIST (or MEASUREGEOM) command. What line are you talking about? The line that shows up when you pick the two points?
