While I try to Install AutoCAD LT 2010 from a DVD i.e. dumped from the Original CD. It gives me an Error while Installing (Error 1309: File could not be found). So I tried to copy the setup from dumped DVD to Local drive of the PC, but still it gives me the same error, is there any solution to this error.

The error usually means the source is corrupt: you tried the first fix, so
my guess is the DVD was damaged and your content is corrupt. You might have
to order another DVD if no one here has any other ideas:

Try copying the files to a temporary folder on the hard drive and run
setup.exe from there.

Hello Chiragpawar,

I understand you receive "Error 1309: File could not be found" when trying to install AutoCAD LT 2010 and copied the set-up file from the DVD to the hard drive to try to continue the install, but you still receive the error.

Are you still receiving the error message?
If so, have you contacted the link Dean suggested to obtain new media?

Please let me know so I can further assist you with this issue.

I'm having the same problems with a downloaded version of Map 3D 2011. It's looking for the help directory install files in a directory that doesn't exist in the network installation distribution.

I wish I could say this is the first time we've had hiccups with the downloaded installation packages... This is the second corruption-related issue I've hit on for this program, and I'm now downloading the same files for the 3rd time.

I went and found the installation disk.  Ran a search for the folder that was supposed to have the files in it, found the folder, copied it to the path the installer was looking for and hit retry.  Worked like a charm.  Mine, in this case, was not corrupted, the files were just missing.
