You need not to choose any screen. When you click on ACAD 2012 shortcut ACAD 2012 splash screen pops up. When you choose ACADE2012, ACADE 2012 profile and splash screen pops up. There are two distinct profiles for two products. Yes, there is only acad.exe for execution but the short cuts are defined with appropriate parameters to start the profiles with product you choose. See the attached screenshot of menus available.
I copied the acad.chm file from ACADE 2011\help to 2012, and it executes once I select AutoCAD Help. This will have to do.
The loading screen doesnt change, its is the ACAD 2012 loading screen for both AutoCAD 2012 - English and AutoCAD Electrical 2012. ACAD has the standard ACAD workspaces and ACADE has all standard and ACADE workspaces, so the electrical package does load all its relavent things, its just the splash screen that is the same for both.
This is strange. This could mean your startup commands may be corrupted. Please check following commands for ACAD 2012 and ACADE 2012. Follow steps below to check
1. Right click on the ACAD 2012 short cut and check properties. It should display following command in start in section of properties. If not try to replace them with folowing
""C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Acade 2012\UserDataCache\"
2. For ACADE 2012 it should be
""C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Acade 2012\acad.exe" /p <<ACADE>>"
If you see any issue still, try to repair product from ADD-Remove section. Please attach you commands here to let us know more about it. Above commands are displayed for product installed on "C:" Drive with standard paths.
I just repaired it, and the splash screen is still ACAD 2012. I am going to uninstall & reinstall it. I will reply with my results.
I really appreciate the help.
I suppose your software has some problem because i cannot understand why there is no Help option in Options dialog box in your 2012 version. I believe uninstall & reinstall can resolve such problems, please let me know whether reinstall can resolve your problems.
Thanks for reporting!

When you are dealing with a company who's primary focus is Mechanical CAD and Inventor 3D modeling - what do you expect? They sold out many years of subject matter expertise to save money. It is painfully evident that your "Snap" issue is only one of many more to come. Good Luck...
Yes I tried,
The error messagge in the log file changes but the installation hangs ub the same point.
i tried also to uninstall completely .net software and let's Autocad install it, but without success.
I'll try to ask to the supplier help desk.
Try un-installing ALL versions of net, then install them in order from the Microsoft Windows Update website. You need to install the first one, reboot then the next one and so on until all of them are installed.
