Re: AutoCAD for MAC downloading free trial

12-28-2012 08:22 AM in reply to: Hana85

Hello Hana!

 

Welcome to the Community.

 

I am a tad confused if you are installing the trial for Windows or for Mac. Please follow the instructions below depending on which system you have.

 

Windows - Follow the Clean Uninstall Instructions, then try to download the trial again.

 

Mac - Search Autodesk in Finder, drag and drop all Autodesk files into the Trash, and try again.

 

Please note that either solution above will completely remove all Autodesk products from you system, not just the AutoCAD Trial. Let us know if this helps.

Hi Amanda, 

 

Thank you for quick reply. 

 

I am trying to install the trial for MAC. As you can see on the screenshot I don't have autodesk on my Mac and the installation still says I already have AutoCAD installed.

Hi Hana,

 

The installer for AutoCAD for MAC can also give this message if it detects a windows install of AutoCAD on a Parallels or Bootcamp partition. Could that be the case for you?

Hi Hana,

 

Could you, please verify that you don't have two (or more) installations mounted, that is two (or more) DMG images of AutoCAD installer. If you have - unmount all, then restart your Mac, mount DMG and run installer again.

(actually the solution comes from Pavan Jella):

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-for-Mac/unable-to-install-AutoCAD-for-Mac/m-p/2969940#M1975

 

Another way to veryfy is there some AutoCAD installation on your Mac:

1. Open Terminal window > you can find it by typing terminal in spotlight

2. In Terminal window, input "find /Applications -name UPISpec" (without quotes)

If you have AC for Mac on your Mac this command should find it and will show somehing like this:

 

/Applications/Autodesk/AutoCAD 2013/AutoCAD 2013.app/Contents/CER/UPI/UPISpec

 

 

@ asburyj:

I'm afraid, that you are not right. AutoCAD installation in Windows (Boot Camp or more so inside virtual machine) never affect installation process on Mac.

Hi guys, 

 

I do not have any other device paird with my Mac.

 

I only got this from the terminal:

-bash: find/Applications: No such file or directory

 

And the installation advise from Pavan Jella does not work I cannot eject the Autocad drive that opens up becuse it's the installation package. 

 

Anytime I try to open the AutoCAD dmg file it opens as a drive please see attached.

Yes, I see you have only one DMG mounted during installation, so it is not the case.
About Terminal command- you have to type it exactly like this:
find /Applications -name UPISpec
After the words "Applications" and "-name" there is a space, not Return!

Tried copy paste and typing again and again and nothing happens 

 

Last login: Sat Dec 29 13:51:08 on ttys000
-imac-4:~ du$ find /Applications -name UPISpec
-imac-4:~ du$ find /Applications -name UPISpec
-imac-4:~ du$ find /Applications -name UPISpec
-imac-4:~ du$

 

No return only space and tried also find UPISpec only and 

find: UPISpec: No such file or directory

 

But when I type find /Applications UPISpec I get like million results from what seems like all applications on my MAC.

It appears that you really don't have AutoCAD installed on your Mac.

 

BTW, what operating system do you have on your iMac?

Mac OS X Version 10.5.8

 

I do hope there is a cure for this one.

10.5.8 ?

 

Which AutoCAD you are trying to install?

 

 EDIT:

I asked about this, because only AutoCAD 2011 for Mac supported on this OS version, all others could give the issue you have during installation.
