OS is Windows 7 Enteprise SP1 French

AutoCad LT 2013 installed in french


Running the app with admin priviligaes works fine, but as a standard user we get the following error.


Erruer 1324. Le chemin du dossier "My Pictures" contient un caractere invalide.


Any ideas?

Have you started the Seat of LT on the Standard users System as an Admin first, shut down LT, logged off Admin, logged on as Standard User and then tried the LT?

Or doe this have something to do with the Program while it is running?

We had the same error with Autocad 2012 LT (in german  "Fehler 1324. Der Ordnerpfad "Eigene Bilder" enthält ein ungültiges Zeichen.") first starting Autocad.

This Autocad error is caused in our case in a folder redirection policy in active directory (for example "\\server\home\userXY\Eigene Bilder"). 

A workaround is to edit the registry key "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\My Pictures" to a path like "C:\temp" or a variable like "%USERPROFILE%". After Autocad was started successfully you can change it back.
