I just downloaded AutoCAD 2014 (From the ADN site if that matters) and installed on a testing PC we have here in the office. At first launch I was prompted with a load of fatal errors and exceptions. Errors in document attached should be in order received. Some of the prompts where shown multiple times. Crash report was sent to Autodesk CER_77778194.
Computer specs are:
Dell Precision T3500
Windows 7 pro - service pack 1 - 64 bit
2.93 GHZ Intel Xeon Processor
12 Gig Ram
NVIDIA Quadro FX 580 card
Working on the system via remote desktop. I have admin privilages.
Beta versions of Revit and Inventor also installed on same machine.
Anyone else have issues?

Wanted to follow up with anyone watching this post. Had Autodesk helping with this one so "thank you" to them. I had microsoft framework 4.5 installed when trying to run installation of AutoCAD 2014. We removed that, installed 4.0, did a repair install, reset settings to default and it looked like it runs well.
Note was to not have 4.5 installed when installing software they did say it was ok to install after the fact. I have not tried this yet.
Could you try to install your ACAD 2014 64 bits on a other "clean" PC 64 bits ?
"clean PC" means (for me) : a PC without any alpha/beta software ...
Sounds good. I will do some checking around and testing and will post results when find.
I didn't have another system that I wanted to use for this. I have removed the beta softwares from this system. Did a reinstall of 2014 autocad and it still does it. I am currently going to do a full uninstall and reinstall and see if that helps.
Did full uninstall and reinstall. that didn't help. I also logged into the system with a different user account and still no luck after doing it's configuring.
I am still running it on the same system through remote desktop.
I did re-download the software from a different site to see if maybe that caused any issues so I will try to install it again.
Install through RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) is not a good idea ...
Could you try for the next Install : Click to select the Setup/install.exe, then Right button, then Run as Administrator
If Install = OK --> IDEM to launch ACAD.exe ...
Sounds good. I will try cleaning it off again to see if that makes a difference and installing it no through remote desktop. Just have to swap around a few things so might not be this week. If you think that is going to be OK for testing. I really only have the one spare that I should test on. I have another but it's very old 32 bit XP machine.
Spent last half hour looking at this some more. Did full uninstall, wiped out all folders on C drive under program files, prog data, users, etc... that had anything to do with Autodesk since there is not other products of theirs on this machine.
Moved the machine to a different office. hooked to monitor, etc... logged in.
Ran setup.exe as administrator.
Nothing... same error messages.
Removed autocad profile from registry (have done this before), and AutoCAD 2014 folders from my C:\Users folder so it would think it had to configure again.
Nope. Nothing. At this point I don't know. but it shouldn't be this hard.
