AutoCAD for Mac won't open - no matter what!

The program crashed whilst I was working on it, now every time I open the software a box just appears saying 'AutoCAD Erorr Reoprt' and asks me to provide feedback to their error report. The actual program will not open even after restarting my computer, uninstalling the software and re-installing it. 

Can anyone shed any light on how to solve this problem??

 

Thanks!

Hiya

 

Yeah I have AutoCAD 2011 and my mac is osX 10.8.2. Its a new machine as well, so its a bit confusing

 

According to System requirements AutoCAD 2011 for Mac runs only on 10.5.8, 10.6.x and 10.7.x. For Mountain Lion you need 2012 or 2013 version.

Hi,

 

Could you provide:what AutoCAD version you are using and what OS version do you have on your Mac?

OS version -?
AutoCAD version?
Did you managed to start AutoCAD at least one time? Or you never managed to start application?
Have you passed activation process?

OSX 10.7.5
AutoCAD LT 2013 Ver. 19.0.55.108
Never managed to start application.
Not sure if I passed activation process

I also have Adobe Suite CS5 installed.
Also a trial copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro which pops up almost every time I launch AutoCad to ask if I still want to continue the trial.

I tried fixing permissions, deinstallating and reinstalling

Also cannot find Flexnet in Library

Thank you for your attention.

Have you tried this solution:

The Library folder is in the root of your HD (not inside your Home folder)

Maxm, if you have a student license is it possible to delete and reload it like this solution suggests?
