AutoCAD LT for Mac "The installation failed"

"The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance"

 

System:

MacBook Pro 6,2 with OS X 10.8.2

 

Installation (newest package downloaded from the internet)

AutoCAD_2013_English_Mac_OSX_R1.dmg

 

/Library/Preferences/FLEXnet Publisher/FLEXnet/ shows no Autodesk Licence (although I bought one), only the Adobe CS4 licenses.

 

What I tried and didn't work for me:

Renaming the FLEXnet Publisher and uninstalling and installing AutoCAD LT again (as suggested in other forum entries)

I tried the above also with the AutoCAD trial, it did not work.

There are also no saved states from AutoCAD, which could prevent start-up or anything like this. (as suggested in other forum entries)

There are no hidden files in the FLEXnet publisher directory as well (I deleted them).

 

Any other suggestion?

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

What didn't work for me sofar:

 

Closed: The problem were the rights in the file system. A repair of the access rights on the respective volume with Disk Utility did the job! I had only to uninstall & then the reinstallation worked without problem.

 

Thanks!
