Can't open AutoCad 2013 for Mac

Hello,

 

Cannot open the program. It happened after I was backing up files on an external hard drive. I got message that Autocrat could not continue, asked if I wanted to save the files for recovery ( I opted not too ), and will not open. I get the error report that "a software problem has caused AutoCad to close unexpectedly." It was working fine up until this point.

I sent the report. I have Mac OS X 10.7.3 

I read that there is a conflict with some Adobe software which I have but cannot find the way to get rid of the FLEXnet folder. 

Any one out there with a solution?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

I think it is not FLEXnet issue in your case, but rather this one:

 

AutoCAD will not launch following a crash on Mac OS X (Lion)

 

Have you tried this solution?

Still doesn't work. Should there be spaces between words and slashes? Thanks daccordo

cd ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State


- spaces are between "Saved\" and "Application\" and between :Application\" and "State"

 

If it will not work, could you post Console output during AutoCAD launch?

Is there no space between cd and ~? I left no space the first time and got ...no such file or directory. With the space I get ? Saved Application State. Try to launch program, still doesn't open. daccordo

Yes, there is a space.

Have you run all three commands from the support topic?

cd ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State

then

rm -rf com.autodesk.AutoCAD.savedState

then

rm -rf com.autodesk.autocadlt.savedState

 

After running the first you should have:

"name of your mac": Saved Application State "short user name"$

in my case it looks:

Maxim-Kanaev-2: Saved Application State max$

How does one post Console output during AutoCAD launch? Have no idea what this does or means.

 

Thanks,

Here's another thing... all my acad file icon, the silver A and red background, have changed to a illustratorish one with DWG in orange and a see through silver cube and the icon.
