Additional steps I've tried:
I uninstalled Autocad. Gave the user w/ a rediected profile Admin Rights and tried to reinstall and immediately got the Error 1324 error. If I reinstall it in the non-redirected account it installs and works fine. As soon as I switch over to the account with the redirected profile (will with admin rights), when I try to start the program I get the error 1324. This happens on more than one account with a redirected profile. I even tried installing it on a different computer and the same thing happens.
>> As soon as I switch over to the account with the redirected profile (will with admin rights),

"with admin rights" means local admin-rights or also network admin-rights?
Is it possible that the local admin with redirected folders does not have enough permissions on that folders?

Users have full admin rights to their redirected folders and I gave full admin rights to the users I've tried so far to get this working on. I had a similar problem with AutoCad 2013, but a registry change fixed the problem I was having there. I tried the same thing in 2014 and no luck.
One thing I did notice though that in the admin account w/o a redirected profile, the registry key HKCU\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R19.1\ACAD-D001:409 exists while it doesn't in an admin account w/ a redirected profile.I don't know if it's related, but it's one possible thing.
Oh, I did try importing that key into the account with the redirected profile and fixed the location keys, but no luck there either.
So I got tired of waiting for my pay-for-support to get back with me and finally ended up fixing it myself. It has everything to do with redirected profile evidently in my case. I backed up these regkeys -
Then I modified the following to match
My Music: %USERPROFILE%\Music
My Pictures: %USERPROFILE%\Pictures
After I logged the user out and back in I was able to start autocad 2014 without the 1324 error. I then restored the registry keys and verified that the the locations above were pointed back to the redirected location. Logged the user out and back in and verified that AutoCad 2014 still worked.
It would be really great if AutoDesk could fix their programs to work with redirected profiles. For large companies it's an easy way to manage users and helps with backups and restoration. As a purchaser for our local government IT department, I'm going to be real hesitant about purchasing/upgrading any of our departments to newer versions of AutoCad that continue to exhibit this problem.
Is there any other fixes for this issue? I still cannot get 2014 installed. Users here are in the local admin group, and folder redirection is on. I can install the software either as local admin, or as myself (domain admin) but the standard user still gets the 1324 error. I have tried everything I can find online to resolve this, yet nothing posted has worked.
Well after headbanging for 2 weeks and trying to figure this problem out what happened was the following scneario
as we have 2 different campus sites we have 2 fileservers running win 2008
a staff memberA who had their profile and user drive on Site 1 logged on to the machine and auto cad worked fine
staff member B who had profile and user drive on site 2 logged into the machin that invalid character error kept coming up
so moved Staff member B profile and user drive to Site One Servers and it worked fine
differnce betwen the 2
Site B server did not have Owner Creator permissions on the users folder
thats just one solution we had...
this was after trying every single google suggestion out there none of it worked messing about with registery, resinstalling software, recreating profiles on the same server the lot you name it!
